Passed in the House: Rouzer Bill to Ensure Fair Tax Treatment of Combat-Injured Veterans

December 06, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today the House voted unanimously to pass the Combat-Injured Veterans Tax Fairness Act, authored by Rep. David Rouzer (R-NC). This legislation helps ensure combat-injured veterans are able to recover income taxes that were improperly collected by the Department of Defense on certain disability severance payments.

In a speech on the House floor, Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) praised Rep. Rouzer’s work on behalf of our nation’s veterans:

“We have a responsibility to support all the brave men and women who protect and defend our great nation—especially those who are injured in the line of duty … I want to thank Representative Rouzer for his leadership on the ‘Combat-Injured Veterans Tax Fairness Act.’ This legislation takes important action to ensure America’s promises are kept to our combat-injured heroes and their families.”
