Free National Tax Advocacy Webinar Wednesday, Register Today
|WASHINGTON – More details of the joint CUNA/state league "Don't Tax My Credit Union" campaign will be revealed during a free Wednesday Webinar at 3 p.m. ET.
The national Webinar on the credit union tax status will feature a legislative briefing on the tax situation facing credit unions and valuable information on the tools CUNA and state leagues are providing to help credit unions join the fight to preserve the credit union tax exemption.
CUNA and affiliated state leagues last week 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, but our members will be the best spokespeople we have, especially on an issue as vital to our future as this," CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney said.
Registration for the free Webinar is available here.
