Tax Policy Developments As Congress Returns
WASHINGTON (6/4/13)--The Credit Union National Association continued to talk tax reform with Capitol Hill staff members during last week's recess, and CUNA remains focused on the U.S. Congress's ongoing efforts at tax reform as legislators return to Washington this week.

Leaders on the House Ways and Means Committee are also continuing their own tax reform work, he said.
 
As these discussions move along, CUNA continues to encourage the more than 96 million credit union members nationwide to present a unified message to members of congress: Don't Tax My Credit Union!
 
More than 30,000 congressional contacts have been sparked since CUNA and the leagues kicked off the large-scale, nationwide grassroots-mobilization campaign in mid-May.
 
CUNA has created a new web site, DontTaxMyCreditUnion.org , a new Facebook page , a Twitter handle @CUNAadvocacy , and hashtag, #DontTaxMyCU, and a reformatted version of CUNA's tax advocacy tool kit to help credit unions and their members spread this message.
 
Spending bills, defense authorization, potential immigration reforms, student lending action and Internal Revenue Service issues are among the items on the near-term agenda for the U.S. Congress, but key tax writers have indicated that these other issues will not distract them from their tax reform task, CUNA Senior Vice President of Legislative Affairs Ryan Donovan noted.
