If traveling abroad is in your future, then you need to check your passport and make sure you have a valid one. Getting a new passport could now take a couple of weeks longer.
We recently flew all the way across the country only to discover one of our passports was expired! The day was stressful, but we learned a lot about how to get a same day passport!
Did you know that if you have a sizeable tax debt and have not paid it out or contacted the IRS for a payment plan they will confisgate your passport?
