Don't Tax My Credit Union
Please join us and the rest of the 96 million body credit union family as we fight to keep our benefits of being a credit union member. Credit Unions have been exempt from paying income tax since 1916, when the income tax was first instituted. The reason for this exemption status, as recognized by the IRS is, "Credit Unions are organized and operated for mutual purposes and without profit." In simpler terms a credit union is a nonprofit organization and any profit made is returned to the membership. Essentially this means that a tax implemented on Credit Unions is a tax directly on its members!
We need your voice to help stop this from happening! You can help prevent your credit union from being taxed by contacting your U.S. Representative and Senators which can be done through the link below. There you will find a pre-written letter that you can email to Congress, saying loud and cleaer: "Don't Tax My Credit Union!" Participating is very easy and we encourage you to spread the word to your family and friends to participate as well. The more voices we have the louder we will be heard!
We thank you for your membership and your help! If you have any questions stop in and ask us. Also look for upcoming events in the branch to participate and help grow our Credit Union Voice!
