Iowa Bankers Trying to Raise Credit Union Taxes — Your Help Needed

Credit unions provide a not-for-profit, cooperatively-owned choice in the financial marketplace. For decades, the credit union business model has saved Iowans money and provided access to credit that many could not get from a bank. With tax reform being discussed at the state level, bank lobbyists are using it as an opportunity to try and convince legislators to raise taxes on credit unions, effectively taxing their competition out of the market.

As a member-owner of your credit union - your voice matters – as any tax increase is ultimately a tax on you, our owners! Please contact your state legislator today and ask them to oppose bank efforts to raise credit union taxes, so Iowans like you continue to have the ability to choose a not-for-profit financial partner.
