Credit Union Twitter Campaign

According to Keith Leggett’s Credit Union Watch, Kingsport-based Eastman Credit Union’s CEO, Olan O. Jones, Jr., had a total compensation package of $9.26 million. His base pay was almost $7 million, while he received $262,440 in bonuses and $2 million in deferred compensation.

If the Tennessee credit union industry were to pay taxes like every other business, it would have resulted in $81 million in tax revenue for Tennessee over the last 12 years.

Let’s tell Congress it’s time to examine the affordability of the credit union tax exemption.
