The U.S. Army could be 30,000 troops lighter if a new law allowing the IRS to suspend travel rights of Americans it claims are tax delinquent passes Congress – the Internal Revenue Service says active duty soldiers owe a total of around $390 million in back taxes.

“About 30,000 active-duty troops and a similar number of reserve-component members owe the Internal Revenue Service a collective $390 million in back taxes, according to IRS data,” reports WTLX.

A new law buried within a transport bill that has already passed the Senate and is expected to pass the House shortly would empower the IRS to revoke passports of Americans accused of tax delinquency.

“There is no requirement that the tax payer be guilty of or even charged with tax evasion, fraud, or any criminal offense — only that the citizen is alleged to owe the IRS back taxes of $50,000 or more,” reports the Daily Economist.

As we have highlighted, although the bill is completely illegal in that it violates Article I, Section 9, paragraph 3 of the United States Constitution, experts say the Republican controlled House is like to pass the provision because it will raise an estimated $750 million dollars in extra taxes.

Federal employees would also be ensnared by the new measures. IRS figures show that in 2010, “98,000 federal employees owed a combined $1 billion in back taxes.”

Furthermore, members and employees of the U.S. Senate owe over $2 million dollars in unpaid taxes.

Any support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

Please remember I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has been taken offline by their original hosters which would be unavailable for viewing if it wasn't for this site. Therefore I would kindly ask you to help support me so that the site can continue doing what I think is an important job as well as reporting on stories the mainstream media would rather you didn't know about. I personally think it is important to host material such as removed reports that show that even FOX News once repoted on Israeli spy rings following the 9.11 hijackers before September 11th Or publishing the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was removed from their site once they enacted some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power.

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation, especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful!
