Credit unions' tax exemption is on the table: ACT NOW!




Learn about our credit union "Dedicated Advocacy Week" strategy.


Check out these tools to help you say, "Don't tax my credit union!"


Credit unions' tax status could disappear with tax reforms occurring now. We must make this the biggest, loudest, most sustained grassroots effort in our nation's history in order to protect it.


Each house in Congress is currently engaged in comprehensive tax reform activities. According to CUNA, leaders in the House and Senate have committed to forwarding some type of tax reform initiatives this year, perhaps as early as July. The effort is not a "revision" but rather a "start from scratch" approach that requires CU tax policy to be ADDED to legislation instead of simply preserved as part of pre-existing language. Plus, we are competing to be heard with 400+ other advocacy groups looking to protect their own tax status while fighting banker opposition.


This fight will require Activists to begin making Congressional contacts now, while educating your staff, board and members about the benefits they stand to lose if harmful changes are enacted. This will be a long-term process requiring repeat contacts to Congress as the situation develops. We will alert you as messaging changes.
