Driver’s License and Registration Hold

Renewal Holds on Driver’s License and Vehicle Registrations

The State Taxing Authority has a powerful tool to get a delinquent taxpayer’s attention – placing a hold on their driver’s license and vehicle registration renewal.

States will place a hold on the renewal driver’s licenses, professional licenses and vehicle registrations until a taxpayer becomes tax compliant. In most circumstances, this means all unfiled returns need to be submitted and a payment arrangement needs to be negotiated. If you receive a notice that a hold has been placed on a renewal you need to act fast and seek a tax resolution expert. We negotiate with State Taxing Authorities daily on behalf of our taxpayers for reduced tax liabilities and the release of license holds.

Additionally, the IRS has been given the power to put a hold on the renewal of passports. In January of 2018, the IRS began implementing new procedures that included provisions to deny passport applications or renewals for taxpayers with delinquent tax debt of $52,000 or more. When the IRS certifies to the State Department a taxpayer as owing seriously delinquent tax debt, the hold is placed. The taxpayer will need to make a payment arrangement with the IRS for the debt.
