A credit union is a cooperative financial institution, locally operated and driven by the members who use its services. Nearly everyone in Washington and Oregon is eligible to join a credit union. Credit unions exist solely to serve their members, not to make a profit. Because earnings are returned to members, credit unions are typically able to offer better rates on loans and a better return on savings than for-profit financial institutions. Members elect the credit unions’ board of directors, ensuring the member has a voice in policy, products and services offered. Credit unions are concerned about the economic well-being of their members.
The big banks are lobbying for more taxes against credit unions. That could tax some credit unions out of existence, wiping out your choice to belong to a cooperative financial institution. Learn the truth about how the credit union corporate tax exemption benefits working families, and download resources to help you send a message to Congress: "Don't tax my credit union!"
