I have some tax liens which I am in the process of paying off and I have to travel abroad next month. Can I be detained at questioned at the border and be deported for not paying taxes? Do I need to pay it off before travelling?
The re-entry permit application form (Form I-131) asks whether the applicant has ever filed a U.S. tax return as a nonresident, or has ever failed to file a U.S. tax return on the basis of nonresident status. If the applicant has claimed nonresident status, the re-entry permit may be denied on the ground that the alien has abandoned his or her LPR status.
No but you better take care of this lien(s) if you are serious about asking for any further immigration benefits from US government.
