Tutor description

The assignment is to pick a tax law that we find unfair. I chose the tax liability of a personal injury settlement. Physical injuries and physical sickness are non-taxable. Where there is no relation between the emotional distress or mental anquish and a physical injury or sickness, the settle amount is taxable. Other taxable personal injury settlements with non-physical injuries include invasion of privacy , discrimination. Because there is no physical injury the settlement award is taxable. How do we get mental injuries to be non taxable? How can we change that? How do we get the public to agree? How do we get the governments incentive?
