#DontTaxTuesday


Today, February 25th is #DontTaxTuesday – a day to bring awareness and prompt members of congress not to tax Credit Unions. You’ve been with us this far, fighting to protect credit unions from new taxes – taxes that are really just new taxes on the 98 million Americans who, like you, belong to credit unions.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans have written, emailed and called Congress to tell them “Don’t Tax My Credit Union.”

And you’re being heard. More than 800,000 messages have been sent to Capitol Hill! Every day another Member of Congress publicly declares his support for credit unions.

But now we’re entering a critical stage. Congress returns to Washington this week, and will start putting pen to paper on tax reform legislation – legislation that could include taxation of credit unions.

For a few sample tweets, you can fill out this short form here or use one of these messages below on Twitter:
