If credit unions were to pay income tax, your credit union, as well as others, would have to pass their tax payments onto you in the form of higher fees, higher loan rates, and lower savings dividends. Taxing credit unions would not affect the amount of tax you pay as an individual, but would affect how much you pay for credit union loans as well as how much you earn on your deposits. Unfortunately, the big banks and some in Congress want to raise taxes and impose new fees on 96 million credit union members who represent 40% of all Americans, yet represent only 6% of the assets in financial institutions. And, they want to do this despite the fact that credit unions are not-for-profit and meeting their core mission every day.
