Will the IRS Take Your Passport?

A little-noticed provision in the highway funding bill Congress passed last week threatens a right most Americans take for granted: the right to travel abroad. The provision in question gives the Internal Revenue Service the authority to revoke the passport of anyone the IRS claims owes more than $50,000 in back taxes.
