To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

To whom this may concern,

This is a request for records, memos, correspondence, or documents pertaining to the IRS' program to revoke an individuals passport by means of notifying the Department of State. This program is detailed on the IRS website here:

I would like to know the number of certifications that the IRS has certified to the State Department for action.

Please produce all records relating to such certifications such as the number of certifications made, the dates those certifications were made, the guidelines for certifying a debt, information about whether victims of identity theft will have their debts certified, etc - as well as any correspondence between the IRS and the State Department relating to the process of the program. Please produce not only records but manuals on how this process functions and whether or not individuals are notified by the IRS before notification to the State Department.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please immediately contact me via email for more details. Do not close my request without consulting me first.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
