Don’t Tax My Credit Union is a national campaign dedicated to ensuring Congress doesn’t raise taxes on 96 million credit union members nationwide and preserves financial choice for American consumers. Join us today to share your story and tell Congress: Don’t Tax My Credit Union!
Below is an example of some verbiage that you may use to correspond with your representative:
“There is a reason credit unions are exempt from income taxes. All credit unions like mine are not-for-profit and owned by their members. As not-for-profits, credit unions return what they earn to their members in the forms of lower rates on loans, higher returns on savings and lower and/or fewer fees. In fact, for every $1 in new taxes on credit unions, the government would wipe out $10 worth of better rates and lower fees for consumers. That’s a solid investment in our communities and something I personally enjoy as a credit union member.”
Share the message with your local Representatives— “Please don’t tax my Credit Union”. You may call them, send them a letter, or e-mail them via http://www.donttaxmycreditunion.org/take-action/. We appreciate your involvement in preserving your credit union’s income tax exemption.
