Don’t Tax My Credit Union

This coming Friday, July 26, is the deadline for lawmakers to submit their tax reform proposals to Finance Committee leaders, who will then take those suggestions to create a comprehensive proposal for a new U.S. tax code. Repealing the tax exempt status of credit unions may be among those proposals.

As a credit union member, we need to send a strong message to our lawmakers that the tax exempt status of credit unions is vitally important and would negatively impact millions of individuals should it be repealed.

To support the “Don’t Tax My Credit Union message, credit union supporters are asked to tweet “#DontTaxMyCU,” aimed at their lawmakers in both the Senate and the House on Tuesday, July 23, 2013.
