Helping your money stretch a little further

Earlier this year, our community was hit by destructive, deadly, and devastating storms. Iowans are resilient, and watching our community come together to rebuild is inspiring.

It’s costly to rebuild – these storms take an emotional toll and fixing the physical damage is pricey. Recovery is never easy and is a lengthy process, but we can provide some relief to these families by reducing the tax burden and helping their money go a little further.

That’s why I introduced the Heartland Emergency Assistance Relief from Tax (HEART) Act to make any compensation received for damages caused by a severe storm or tornado tax exempt. I’m grateful that Iowa Representatives Marianette Miller-Meeks, Ashley Hinson, and Randy Feenstra joined me in this effort to help Iowa families.

Bottom Line: I’ll keep working to help here at home, in the heart of the heartland, when Mother Nature strikes.
