Trafficking Survivors Should Not Pay Income Tax When They Win in Court
• • Terry FitzPatrick
The Alliance to End Slavery and Trafficking supports a simple but necessary change to America’s federal tax code. The “Human Trafficking Survivor Tax Relief Act” (S. 895) would exempt from federal income taxes any restitution or civil damage awards that survivors receive.
This short, straightforward, bipartisan measure will help survivors put every penny they might receive from those involved in their trafficking toward rebuilding their lives in freedom.
ATEST urges quick approval of this commonsense measure by Congress.
