When survivors make the effort to face their traffickers down in court they should get to keep the monetary damages they fought for and won.
On April 27, 2022, the U.S. Senate passed the Human Trafficking Survivor Tax Relief Act (S.895), a bipartisan proposal that would ensure civil damages, restitution or other monetary awards given to human trafficking survivors are exempt from federal income taxes.
We need your help to get the House of Representatives to pass this bill. Restitution, civil penalties and other monetary awards to survivors through the courts should not be subject to federal taxes.
It’s an easy fix but it could mean the world for people who are working toward healing and rebuilding their lives. Contact your representatives today.
