Congressman Calls For Investigation On Mo’ Money Taxes


Congressman Steve Cohen out of Memphis plans to join a Virginia Congressman in sending a letter to US Attorney General Eric Holder calling for an investigation into Mo' Money Taxes. This time of year is big business for tax preparers, but the response from Mo' Money Taxes customers is anything but positive. Customers all over the southeast have been complaining to the news media about the company. Just this week all six stores in the Norfolk, Virginia area were shut down and computers taking away by police. "The police took the computers out. They're not seized. They just took them out ...

Congressman Cohen, Chairman Lamar Smith Introduce Bipartisan Bill To Protect Consumers From Unfair Taxes On Digital Goods
[WASHINGTON, DC] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) joined Science, Space, and Technology Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (TX-21) this week to introduce legislation that would protect consumers from unfair taxes on digital goods, like those purchased over the Internet or on smartphones. The Digital Goods and Services Tax Fairness Act of 2015, H.R. 1643, ensures that digital goods are not taxed at a higher rate than their tangible counterparts as well as ensures that consumers do not suffer tax discrimination because they choose to purchase a good in digital rather than tangible form. “Digital goods and services are quickly becoming a driving force in our national economy,” said Congressman Cohen. “We should ensure that consumers aren’t discouraged from purchasing digital goods because of high taxes, and our Digital Goods and Services Tax Fairness Act would help accomplish such a goal.” Chairman Smith said: “In our modern economy, more and more consumers are buying digital g
Reps. Cohen, Davis and Swalwell Introduce Legislation to Restore Fairness in Student Lending
[WASHINGTON, DC] – Congressmen Steve Cohen (TN-09), Danny Davis (IL-07) and Eric Swalwell (CA-15) today introduced legislation to restore fairness in student lending by treating privately issued student loans the same as other types of private debt in bankruptcy. Until 2005, this type of student loan debt was dischargeable in bankruptcy, but a change to the bankruptcy code made that year removed this consumer protection. Student loan debt now outstrips both auto loans and credit card debt as the largest form of non-mortgage consumer debt. According to Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) estimates, outstanding student loan debt in the United States topped $1 trillion in 2011—including approximately $150 billion of private student loan debt. “With student loan debt outpacing both auto loans and credit card debt as the largest form of non-mortgage consumer debt, Congress must take action to help reduce this burden on the American people,” said Congressman Cohen.  “Peo
Cohen Leads Effort to Secure Half Billion Dollars for Tennessee Hospitals
Newly-agreed compromise guarantees disproportionate share hospital (DSH) payments for Tennessee through 2025 [WASHINGTON, DC] – The House of Representatives today passed the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act, which includes a compromise negotiated by Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) and members of the Tennessee Congressional Delegation that will guarantee disproportionate share hospital (DSH) allotments totaling more than $530 million over the next 10 years to help the state’s hospitals and community health centers recoup expenses incurred caring for those who cannot afford to pay. Tennessee is the only state in the nation that does not receive these DSH allotments automatically. “Tennessee hospitals deserve the same level of certainty about their DSH payments that hospitals throughout America have, and I am pleased that this compromise will provide that certainty,” said Congressman Cohen. “I will continue fighting for our hospitals and am happy that the Tennessee
Cohen Bill Would Help Protect Consumers from Fraudulent Tax Preparers Like Mo’ Money
[WASHINGTON, DC] – With the April 15th federal tax filing deadline approaching, Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today reintroduced his Tax Return Preparer Accountability Act to protect consumers from unscrupulous tax preparation businesses like Mo’ Money Taxes. The legislation would give the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) explicit authority to ensure that paid tax preparers, 40% of which act fraudulently according to the New York Times, are adequately trained and maintain high standards of integrity. Congressman Cohen’s bill is cosponsored by Representatives Robert “Bobby” Scott (VA-03) and Carolyn Maloney (NY-12) as well as Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (DC). “Throughout the country, Mo’ Money was caught defrauding honest taxpayers with outrageous fees and cheating them out of the refunds they deserved,” said Congressman Cohen. “I’m glad that the Department of Justice shut them down so they can’t prey on Memphians anymore, but there remain many other fly-by
