    Default Citizenship While Owing Taxes

    I am a Legal Permanent Resident and would like to begin the process for citizenship. I have some unpaid federal and CA state taxes (I am being represented by tax attorney for these). Will having outstanding unpaid taxes affect my application for citizenship, or can I still become a US citizen while making payments to the IRS and State?

    Default Re: Citizenship While Owing Taxes

    Without being able to crawl inside the USCIS officer's head and know what he's thinking, all I can really say is that it could potentially cause problems. (I'm assuming at this point this is a purely civil collection matter; IRS CID is not involved.)

    Default Re: Citizenship While Owing Taxes

    Thanks for your response. This is not a criminal matter.. purely civil. I just thought that if I am working out a payment plan, I would still be able to apply for citizenship. I just fell on hard times.
