A recent Rush Passport™ blog entry spoke about US citizens who owe millions of dollars in back taxes to the IRS and their passports are still valid. Many US Citizens feel that anyone who owes money to the IRS should not be issued valid passports until their balances are cleared. Other US citizens feel that the US Department of State should not interfere with the right for a citizen to get a passport regardless of whether or not they owe money to the IRS.
As this debate rolls along, it seems that the US is not the only country that has troubles with people who owes millions in back taxes and can still apply for, receive and new passport.
In New Delhi, Lieutenant Governor Iqbal Singh has admitted that he had recommended that Hasan Ali Khan’s passport be expedited on humanitarian grounds. Even though Khan faces charges of tax evasion and money laundering, Singh reportedly used his policital power to order Khan’s passport applicantion to be expedited even though Khan owes the government millions of dollars.
It seems that this passport problem is a global one. Citizens want to have the privilege of owning a passport, regardless of whether or not they owe back taxes. Proponents feel that this withholding a person’s passport based on money owed may provide another economic stimulus to the company.
