Iowa House Finalizing Tax Bill - Your Help Needed!

The House Ways and Means Committee is holding a public hearing on their tax bill on Monday, April 9, at 5:00 p.m. In addition to speakers during the hearing, the Committee is soliciting public comments online.

Since they have not released their tax bill yet, we don't know whether or not a tax increase on credit unions will be included. Therefore, our message to the Committee is to ask them to focus on helping Iowans keep more of their paycheck and oppose any credit union tax increase.

Sample comment: I am a credit union member and am happy that the Governor's bill does not raise credit union taxes. The Senate tax reform bill raises taxes on 20 credit unions and over 600,000 Iowans - which is the opposite of tax relief. Please do not include any tax increase on credit unions in the House bill. A tax increase on credit unions is a tax increase on credit union members like me.
