Community Bankers Association of Illinois

Action Alert! - Urge Congress to Pass "Tax Extenders"
December 2, 2010

CBAI is calling on banks to urge Congress to vote to extend current tax rates and expiring tax measures during the Congressional "Lame Duck" session. The passage of these critical tax measures will provide tax certainty and allow community banks and other small businesses to better support job growth and greater economic stability, and help encourage the nation's fragile economic recovery. These tax measurers must be extended before the end of the year. CBAI staff has delivered this message to the Illinois Congressional Delegation, but now we are calling on our members to do the same.

The various expiring tax measures include: extending the current income tax rates, the current capital gains and dividend tax rates, and the five-year net-operating loss (NOL) carryback, addressing the estate tax, and other beneficial measures

The legislative schedule will be very crowded in the waning days of the 111th Congress. Please respond to this Action Alert today.

Please Note - The E-Mail link to Senator Mark Kirk has not yet been established by Capwiz. Additionally, other Congressional email addresses may be temporarily down due to the fact that members of Congress are moving offices over the next several weeks.
