WASHINGTON — NASCUS Chairman Linda Jekel, director of credit unions for Washington State, told CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference that federal and state chartered credit unions must bond together as they face the expected IRS ruling on unrelated business income tax.

“While UBIT only applies to state-chartered credit unions,” she said, “NASCUS recognizes that the implications of one charter’s challenges are not always isolated. It is important that we educate the IRS about the modernization of the nation’s credit unions. State regulators and state legislatures have long recognized that credit unions must evolve their products and services to meet the needs of members. The IRS must also recognize the modern character of credit unions–institutions that have continued to provide credit and thrift services to their members since 1908. This understanding will be critical in the system-wide effort to reach IRS agreement regarding what is the related business of credit unions.”
