With the presidential election only a few weeks away, candidates are spending a lot of time and money to educate the public on their political agenda. Whoever is elected to the highest office in the nation, we can expect changes to occur in all areas of government. For NSSTA, tax reform is always an urgent issue. This is especially true in these times of large scale changes in our governing bodies. Protecting the income tax-free status of structured settlements is a priority that we focus on 365 days a year.
One of our biggest goals at NSSTA is to keep settlement payments income tax-free for victims of injury and illness. We work to accomplish this by educating our elected officials on the benefits of structured settlements. Through the efforts of NSSTA and our members we continue to build a team of advocates and allies that support the use of structured settlements as a tool for financial security.
