The Senate on Tuesday voted to repeal the “widows tax,” a financial penalty affecting over 65,000 military survivors across the country. The measure passed as part of the fiscal year 2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
The House voted to repeal the widows tax Dec. 11. The measure now heads to the White House for President Donald Trump to sign. In a tweet on Dec. 11, Trump indicated he would sign the bill. “Congress – don’t delay this anymore! I will sign this historic defense legislation immediately!”
