We Need YOU!!
Iowa’s House Ways & Means committee passed their tax bill (HF2489) out of committee without a tax on credit unions. The bill now goes to the House floor to be voted on – perhaps next week. We’re expecting an amendment to include a credit union tax and we’ll continue to fight such an effort through personal calls, emails and attendance at town hall meetings.
The Senate Ways & Means committee is working on a new version of a tax bill – and it still taxes credit unions. The battle on the Senate side will be much more difficult.
As you know, the Senate tax bill will increase taxes on more than 600,000 Iowans. Although that might be good for bank shareholders, it’s not good for Iowans.
We need your assistance to keep the House’s bill free of any new taxes on credit unions and your continued assistance as the Senate and House reconcile their bills. Find out more on our advocacy page.
