Thousands of Americans may be denied a passport over failure to pay tax debt

A 2015 law that was enforced in February requires the IRS and State Department deny passports to Americans who owe more than $51,000 in unpaid taxes

A spokeswoman for the IRS said roughly 326,000 people are affected by the law

Officials said they will not be revoking passports, simply denying applications for a new passport or a passport renewal

The IRS spokeswoman said that 220 people have paid more than $11.5million in overdue taxes as of late June so they could either apply for a passport or renew it

Some 1,400 others have set up payment plans to pay off what they owe
