In an effort to continue putting pressure on Congress to maintain the credit union tax exemption in any tax reform package that is considered, CUNA will be holding an online rally today from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm. The rally in support of the Don’t Tax My Credit Union campaign will be live streamed on www.donttaxmycreditunion.org.
The principal focus of the rally, hosted by Paul Berry, is to encourage credit union members and staff to contact Congress by using the email and “Tweet Congress” portals on www.donttaxmycreditunion.org. It is important that credit union supporters continue to drive home the importance of the credit union tax exemption to their Congressional representatives because as the tax reform debate progress, it will be vital that Congress fully understand how large of an impact credit unions have in the communities that they represent and how the tax exemption allows credit unions to continue that positive work.
For further information on the online rally or CUNA and MD|DC CUA’s advocacy efforts with regards to the tax exemption, please contact Ricardo Pineres (firstname.lastname@example.org).
