Don't Tax My Credit Union!
As a member-owner of Santa Ana Federal Credit Union, you benefit directly from the unique structure of your credit union. Like similar cooperatives, our not-for-profit status has always meant we are tax exempt.
But today, that not-for-profit tax exempt status is being threatened in Congress by lobbyists from the for-profit banking industry. There is nothing big banks want more than to tax your credit union, thereby undermining its ability to offer higher savings rates, lower fees, and superior loan rates. In short, banks want to force everyone to do business at a bank.
Congress is considering a drastic overhaul of the tax code. If congress listens to the big Wall Street banks, your credit union would soon lose its not-for-profit tax exemption, and with it, the high value you have come to expect from your credit union. This effectively means a new tax on you and your family.
We can stop the big banks if we have the help of you, our members.
Please click here
to tell congress Don’t Tax My Credit Union. Only when your voice is heard on Capitol Hill will we be able to convince congress that a new tax on credit unions is actually a tax on you and on millions of other hard working families.
All you need to do is click this link and then enter some basic information. It will only take you 30 seconds to protect the credit union choice that is so important to you, to your family and to your local community.

See What Our Members Have to Say!
"I have been banking with SAFCU for 15 years and I would like to take a moment to mention the professional service I received recently from one of your employees. I had a couple banking/loan requests and was referred to Maria Hafferkamp. She was extremely helpful, polite and responsive. She worked diligently to help me resolve my issues and even offered additional banking solutions, which I selected. She was always friendly and had a pleasant disposition. I have banked at SAFCU and have never once received anything other than professional service.
Please also convey my deepest appreciation to Marisa Martinez, who has helped me so many times over the years. She, and her staff, are the reason I will never leave this bank. You guys all do such a great job."
