Internal Revenue Code Section 7345 allows for the IRS to inform the U.S. State Department about those with seriously delinquent tax debts and the State Department can deny, revoke or place limitations on passports of those individuals with seriously delinquent tax debts until they get into good standing with the IRS.
It appears as though the code section defines those with serious tax debts as amounts that exceed $50,000 and a tax lien was filed and or a levy was issued to collect on the amount.
However, certain exceptions exist and I have included a link from the IRS website below, that has more information regarding the status of this program.
