Don't Tax My Credit Union

Congress is considering an overhaul of the federal tax code. The rules that have exempted credit unions from federal taxes for decades could be in jeopardy.

As a member of Virginia Credit Union, your help is needed to send a clear message to Washington. Credit unions are exempt from federal income taxes because they are not-for-profit, member-owned cooperatives. The federal income tax exemption for credit unions serves a vital purpose and must continue.
