Current Issues and Opportunities
We need your help! Congress is considering possible legislation to reform the U.S. tax code. It appears lawmakers are considering a "blank piece of paper" approach where all exemptions would be removed from the tax code and Congress would start from scratch to write a new tax code. If Congress goes down that road, all tax exemptions, including the credit union tax status, could be gone.
How does this impact you?
Any tax on credit unions is really a tax on its members, since credit unions are cooperatively owned by the people they serve. If credit unions were taxed, their benefits to members and communities could be lost, and a consumer-friendly option in the financial marketplace will vanish.
