    living outside US

    I know a couple who have been living in Columbia South America for the past few years doing a missionary work. We filed a tax return for them in 2016 because they had some income. In 2017 they didn't have enough income to require filing a tax return and in 2018 it was the same. But they were told by someone else living in there that if they didn't file tax returns each year they would have trouble getting their passports/visa renewed. Does anyone know if this is true?
    They come back to the states every other year to visit family so definitely don't want any issues to arise.

    Thanks

    Guessing there is confusion with revocation of passport due to tax debt rather than non-filing is below threshold. https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small...n-unpaid-taxes

      I prefer to file tax returns to start the clock running on the statute of limitations. Besides, the IRS will wonder what they're living off of, who's paying their airfare, etc.
