May 20, 2013

More details of the joint CUNA/state league “Don't Tax My Credit Union” campaign will be revealed during a free webinar Wednesday, May 22, at 3 p.m. Eastern.

The webinar will feature a legislative briefing on the tax situation facing credit unions and information on the tools CUNA and state leagues are providing to help credit unions join the fight to preserve the credit union tax exemption.

Last week, CUNA and affiliated state leagues launched a large-scale, nationwide grassroots-mobilization campaign urging the nation’s 96 million credit union members to deliver a united message to Congress: “Don't tax my credit union!”

The campaign is being launched at a time when Congress has made broad-based tax reform a major priority. The initiative will urge Capitol Hill lawmakers as part of any final tax reform plan to preserve the federal tax exemption credit unions receive as not-for-profit, member-owned cooperatives.

“It’s rare that credit unions call upon their members to take action,” says CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney. “But our members will be the best spokespeople we have, especially on an issue as vital to our future as this."
