Brief Executive Summary
The Special Investigations Division of the House Committee on Government Reform examines the impact of the "Disabled Veterans Tax" on military veterans in California's 20th Congressional District. The tax affects veterans with both 20 years of military service and service-related disabilities, reducing their retirement benefits dollar-for-dollar by the disability compensation received. Key findings include approximately 820 veterans in California’s 20th Congressional district being subject to the tax, resulting in an annual loss of $3.7 million in benefits.
