CUNA Launches Anti-tax Campaign

The Credit Union National Association, a trade group that represents credit unions, is launching a new campaign to protect its members’ federal tax-exempt status.

The campaign, “Don’t Tax My Credit Union,” is intended to rally consumers who belong to credit unions to lobby Congress to preserve the federal tax exemption that credit unions enjoy as not-for-profit, member-owned cooperatives.

The campaign will include a nationwide action alert to nearly 7,000 affiliated state and federally chartered credit unions, a consumer-engagement website, a short animated video about credit unions’ tax status, a national webinar for credit union executives, social media activities and an advocacy “toolkit” for credit unions.
