If I am seriously delinquent on my I.R.S. taxes, can the I.R.S. revoke or deny my U.S. passport?

Yes.

Beginning January 1, 2018, Internal Revenue Code Section 7345 now authorizes the IRS to certify seriously delinquent tax debt to the U.S. State Department for action. The State Department generally will either revoke or will not issue a passport after receiving certification from the IRS that a taxpayer's taxes are "seriously delinquent," as defined in the law.
