One of NACA's top priorities continues to be changing the tax law so that consumer law attorneys’ fees are not taxable to your clients. We are always exploring new and practical ways to avoid this problem and continue our efforts to find a permanent solution through litigation and/or legislation. To that end, NACA has recently commissioned a survey about the public’s understanding of consumer protection law and the ability of consumers to obtain affordable legal help. The results of that research should not only help us in educating our clients, the public, and our courts about the tax issue, but also help us pass our Congressional tax legislation.
