Congressman Franks is the author of H.R. 1058, the Seniors Financial Security Act. This important bill amends the Internal Revenue Code to repeal the income tax on social security income. Individuals have already paid income tax on the amounts of money they pay into Social Security. Trent believes it is outrageous that they also have to pay income taxes again on their Social Security benefits at a time when they are retired and are often least able to afford it.
