What People Are Saying
“The fact that credit unions can spend millions on CEO salaries, sponsoring arenas and making risky loans for extravagant purchases sends a very clear message: the tax treatment of credit unions should be on the table in revenue neutral tax reform.”
-Drew Johnson, Taxpayers Protection Alliance
“As credit unions were originally given tax-exempt status so that they would service lower-income individuals, because banks were not doing so. The situation has now changed, and the tax law should change with it. As Congress proceeds with tax reform, members should consider uprooting this outdated exemption and no longer picking winners and losers. Taxpayers should not have to subsidize a credit union’s name on a stadium, or people’s purchases of aircraft and boats.”
-Diana Furchtgott-Roth, Manhattan Institute
“There is no reason why these humongous credit unions, with their millionaire CEOs and billions of dollars in holdings, should be treated the same as a small soup kitchen, after-school program or animal rescue organization in the eyes of the IRS.”
-Lynne Breyer, Arizona Freedom Alliance
