The undersigned 29 national, state, and local civil legal aid, civil rights, consumer, labor, religious, veteran, and public interest organizations write to strongly urge to take up and pass the Stop EITC and CTC Seizures Act (H.R. 5114), introduced by Rep. Sylvia Garcia (TX-29). H.R. 5114 would prohibit the Secretary of the Treasury from seizing federal Child Tax Credit (CTC) or Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) refunds to pay back student loan debt owed to the U.S. Department of Education
