Take Action for Tax Fairness: Ask Your Senator to Co-Sponsor the End Double Taxation of Successful Consumer Claims Act
Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) has re-introduced the End Double Taxation of Successful Consumer Claims Act (EDTSCCA), S. 766. If passed, this bill would allow consumers who win their cases to deduct the reimbursed legal expenses awarded to them. The existing tax system, which can make consumers pay taxes on reimbursed fees that they never see or receive, is a major threat to consumer protection. Many consumers have struggled with this unfair tax problem after winning their cases or reaching settlements. You can help to build support for the EDTSCCA in Congress.
