  • (#DIW Podcast) #Education, Loan Forgiveness, and #Disability (Or why we need S.2800 the Stop Taxing Death and Disability Act) | Day In Washington
    a lot of sense but there is one big bad gotcha that needs to be addressed Because you re basically getting a monetary windfall the cancellation of a loan is considered as income by the Internal Revenue service That means thousands of dollars you owe in taxes all at once You ve basically swapped out one bill for another If you can t afford to pay off your educational loans because of a disability you certainly can t afford to pay off the thousands of dollars in taxes off of those loans if they are cancelled Thus was born the Stop Taxing Death and Disability Act S 2800 from Senators Coons D Del King I Maine and Portman R Ohio The legislation Exempts from income tax federal and private student loans that are discharged due to the death of a child or total and permanent disability Allows a parent whose child develops a total and permanent disability to qualify for student loan discharge Section 108 f of the Internal Revenue Code Congress already exempts certain cancelled student loans from income taxes so this is just adding a couple of additional categories Note that the legislation isn t just about disability but Death and Disability Part of that is from the story of Donald and Nora Brennen a couple from Maine Their son Keegan graduated cum laude from the New Hampshire Institute of Art and like most young people he had taken out several loans to pay for school Sadly 6 months after graduating Keegan died The Department of Education forgave his loans And then the IRS called the Brennens They now owed more than 30 000 in federal and state taxes That s the reason the Department of Education can t just cancel the debt Because of the potential taxes that would then make people with disabilities liable to the IRS If S 2800 the Stop Taxing Death and Disability Act passes then they could discharge the loans immediately Boom Gone Sounds like a good idea to me As always I encourage you to read more and come to your own opinion Links are available in the comments This is Day Al Mohamed hoping you continue to be well and be informed Day in Washington is a product of the Lead On Network Comments and opinions expressed in this podcast should in no way be considered representative of opinions statements or policies of any organizations affiliations or employers connected with the host Audio production provided by Chris Wright of Wright Media Music is If by Force courtesy of the Podsafe Music Network and Twenty Twelve Records Resources Loan Forgiveness for Permanent Disability via Department of Education https studentaid ed gov sa repay loans forgiveness cancellation disability discharge or https disabilitydischarge com White House Fact Sheet on Student Aid Bill of Rights https www whitehouse gov the press office 2015 03 10 fact sheet student aid bill rights taking action ensure strong consumer Total and Permanent Disability Discharge for Federal Student

    teacher with a background in special education and entrepreneur decided to start a clothing venture after decades of struggling to find clothing that fit If you bought to size the clothing looked juvenile if you bought for the age the typical person with dwarfism swam in the fabric So Kathy as many LP women did before her and do today was resigned to paying twice the price for clothing once to purchase clothes and once to get them altered to fit her But she came to want something different Something for the LP community by the LP community where the profits could return to the base and be used to start internships scholarship programs programs to subsidize clothing for homeless or abused women with dwarfism to help them get back on their feet It s obvious the vision for KDW goes beyond fashion and Ms Woods finds inspiration in First Lady Michelle Obama her approach to raising expectations and pride among African American women and girls She got to visit the White House and meet President Barack Obama in 2015 when she was a guest at the 25th Anniversary celebration of the Americans with Disabilities Act Kathy is also spearheading her own production company and is actively working to help transform the perceptions of Little People globally so that when girls with dwarfism turn on the TV they ll be greeted by positive images of their community versus negative ones In an interview with Alyssa Rosenberg in the Washington Post Kathy D Woods said You look at this generation of little people They re attending college and basically they need to dress the part My brand will help build confidence and my goal is to provide little people women with the tools to help become successful You look good you
