Atlanta, GA (August 28, 2013) Georgia United Credit Union representatives are visiting their U.S. Senators and Congressmen during the August recess to personally deliver postcards received from the organization's 122,000 credit union members to speak out against proposed taxed on credit unions. Mr. Trey Kilpatrick, Regional Director for Senator Johnny Isakson’s Atlanta Office received these visitors to the Senator’s Office on Tuesday, August 27. Georgia United’s Leadership Team members stopped by today to deliver the first wave of postcards on behalf of their membership. As of this date, 28,748 Georgia United Credit Union members have participated in this effort.
Georgia United Credit Union is joining credit unions across the country to encourage all credit union members to take action against recent legislation that proposes taxing credit unions. Credit Unions are active partners in the communities they serve, collaborating with schools, local businesses and other organizations to foster community development. Because credit unions are currently tax-exempt organizations, they are able to offer member-owners benefits like better loan rates, lower fees and higher returns on deposits. Taxing credit unions would eliminate these benefits for the more than 96 million credit union members nationwide.
