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.

Additional information on the “Don’t Tax My Credit Union’ campaign is available at www.donttaxmycreditunion.org.

Don't Let Congress Tax Our Credit Unions! 

Unfortunately, the big banks and some in Congress want to raise taxes and impose new fees on 96 million credit union members who represent 40% of all Americans, yet represent only 6% of the assets in financial institutions. And, they want to do this despite the fact that credit unions are not-for-profit and meeting their core mission every day.

IRS Reminds CUs Of May 15 Form 990 Deadline |

State-chartered credit unions and other tax-exempt organizations must file their 990 forms by May 15 or risk losing their tax-exempt status, the Internal Revenue Service reminded on Friday.

State-chartered credit unions are required to file Form 990 with the IRS annually, although a few states still permit group 990 filings. Federal credit unions are not required to file, since they are not subject to unrelated business income taxes.  Read More
