Senator Ron Wyden Press Release,
U.S. Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Or) and John Cornyn introduced the Human Trafficking Survivor Tax Relief Act, which would exempt civil damages, restitution, and other monetary awards given to human trafficking survivors from federal income taxes.
“Human trafficking survivors are faced with unfair and unnecessary obstacles when trying to seek justice against their abusers,” said Wyden, Ranking Member of the Senate Finance Committee. “This legislation ends tax penalties on survivors, which will help them afford the legal costs of punishing individuals who have committed such heinous crimes. I’m proud to be a part of this bipartisan measure and will continue to fight this form of modern-day slavery.”
