CUNA continues tax status defense after reform info released

CUNA remains prepared to defend the credit union tax status if necessary, CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle said Wednesday in response to the release of a Republican tax reform platform. The 9-page document calls for tax cuts, but doesn’t provide specific details about how they would be funded.

“The presence of not-for-profit, member-owned financial cooperatives brings numerous benefits to both members and consumers as a whole, and CUNA, leagues and credit unions are prepared to vigorously defend it, should the need arise,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “As the administration and Congress continue their work on tax reform, CUNA will continue its engagement to protect the credit union tax status and ensure policymakers are aware of the credit union difference as committees and staff work to add more detail to the framework.”
