Earlier today, President Obama signed Rep. Paulsen’s Don’t Tax Our Fallen Public Safety Heroes Act into law, ensuring that Public Safety Officer Benefits will not be subject to federal income tax.

National Troopers Coalition (NTC) was proud to join or colleagues in law enforcement to support this legislation and effectively advocate for its passage.

Please see the below statement from the Congressman on this exciting development.


Paulsen Statement on the Signing of the Don’t Tax Our Fallen Public Safety Heroes Act into Law
05/22/15 – Congressman Erik Paulsen (MN-03) released the following statement after legislation he authored, the Don’t Tax Our Fallen Public Safety Heroes Act, was signed into law by the President. The legislation clarifies federal law to make sure that both federal and state benefits for fallen public safety officers are not subject to federal income tax.

“Our hearts go out to the family members of all the police officers, firefighters, and EMTs that have given their lives in the line of duty,” said Paulsen. “These heroes paid the ultimate sacrifice keeping their communities safe, and there is nothing in the world that can replace the loss of a loved one. However, we can ensure that these families receive the full benefits promised in the event of an unthinkable tragedy – and this legislation makes sure of that.”

Paulsen is a member of the House Law Enforcement Caucus and has been a strong advocate for issues affecting police, firefighters, and EMTs. In addition, he has worked with Minnesota law enforcement to combat the crime of sex trafficking. Paulsen’s guest to this year’s State of the Union was Minneapolis Police sergeant and anti-trafficking advocate, Grant Snyder.
