Customer Question

Hello, not sure if this is an immigration law question but I'll try! I am a US citizen who has lived in the UK and Spain for many years. Due to double taxation I owe taxes in the USA, and over the last few years have not had the means to pay it. Recently, the US passed a law giving the IRS the possibility to ask for the revocation of passports of people who owe more than $50k in back taxes (which I do). I do not know if my passport has been revoked or not, but I need to travel to the UK for business and have no idea if it will be an problem for me. My current passport, if not revoked, is valid until 2024. I don't know if UK Border checks to see if my passport is revoked or not? Again, I don't know if it has (and have no idea how to check it!!). Many thanks!
