Obama tough on deadbeats. Some might applaud this, but I understand those affected by such "extreme measures" being not too happy about the government's desire to collect what it says is theirs. From the linked article:
To qualify for such extreme measures, the outstanding taxes must exceed $50,000, and all available means to collect the tax must have been exhausted, without success.
Unless someone is at that amount of unpaid taxes owed or has managed to avoid all available means to collect it sounds like nothing to worry about. Someone who has made enough to have outstanding taxes of over $50,000 should probably learn to better manage their finances, or they could always take advantage of the way tax laws have been written and claim a net operating loss to cancel out taxable income. Worked for Trump.
As Patty from Dallas, TX commented on the linked story:
If they can afford to travel they can afford to pay their taxes. People should not be traveling out of the country if they can't afford or are dodging their taxes.
