Credit unions in Missouri did their part to share the "Don’t Tax My Credit Union" message with lawmakers during Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) first ever virtual rally on October 2. From all around the state, these advocates used Facebook and Twitter to show support of the credit union tax status. Video of the rally is available here.
Credit unions shared photos, videos and information using the hashtag #DontTaxMyCU during the online rally. Here are examples from across the state:
CUNA also highlighted messages by several Missouri advocates on Twitter:
Wednesday's virtual rally is just the latest effort in reaching out to members of Congress and informing them about the credit union tax status. As Congress considers comprehensive tax reform, MCUA and other state credit union leageus are working with CUNA to help ensure the credit union federal income tax status remains intact.
The Missouri-Kansas Hike the Hill took place during this event. Several credit union leaders and MCUA staff (pictured at bottom right) were present to spread the DTMCU word while at the U.S. Capitol.
According to CUNA, more than 10,000 people visited the Don’t Tax My Credit Union web site in the hours leading up to the and following the rally, and more than 1,800 email messages were sent to legislators on Wednesday. CUNA is also working to tally the total number of tweets and impressions that were made during the rally.
