WASHINGTON (6/19/13, UPDATED 5:15 p.m. ET)--The threat level of credit unions of tax reform--raised by the release June 13 of a "tax options" paper by the Senate Finance Committee--is explored in the latest episode of "Inside Exchange," the Credit Union National Association's video series of key legislative, regulatory and political topics.
In this episode, titled "Impact of tax reform on credit unions," Paul Gentile, CUNA executive vice president of communications, and Ryan Donovan, CUNA senior vice president of legislative affairs, discuss what the "tax options" paper means for credit unions, how that affects the threat level for credit unions, and the process going forward. They also discuss why now is the time for credit unions to become engaged in preserving and protecting the tax exemption.
CUNA created the "Inside Exchange" video series as a new way to directly communicate to member credit unions, and to provide detailed insights into what's happening in Washington, D.C., in the legislative, regulatory and political arenas.
