COVID-19 has led to many disruptions in member lives. Understanding where the economy is going, the pain points that remain and the glimmers of light showing up as 2021 unfolds provides ways for credit unions to plan on how to focus help for specific members subgroups. Further, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 remains in place for now. The webinar provides reminders as to the changes for members and also some considerations for tax code change with a new presidential administration in place. We look forward to 2024 on both the forecasts and possible tax changes, and how members are likely (both positively and negatively) to be affected by potential tax changes.
