    Hopefully the executives of this credit union will alert non-resident depositors of the consequences of Missouri tax liability on earnings from deposits in this credit union such as any requirement to file an annual Missouri, non-resident tax return and/or pay Missouri state tax.

    We respectfully submit that the above comment is not applicable to this situation. (As in all personal tax matters, you should consult your tax advisor.)

    1. Edward Harvilla says:

      Doesn’t the requirement to file Missouri tax form MO-1040 for Missouri non-residents, who are required to file a Federal return, and have more than $600 in income from Missouri sources also apply to non-residents with more than $600 income earned on deposits with LFCU?

    I wonder how many church members that now work for other banks will have their job eliminated.
    What’s next, our own supermarket chain?

    This is wonderful news as credit unions are very beneficial to its members. Besides accounts, personal & business loans, & other such financial institution products and services; credit unions take it one step further by educating and counseling its members[& non-members too]. Members have a say by voting on how the credit unions are run, unlike banks. Board members are volunteers. They are by far very community service oriented. Take it from me as a former banker, who has crossed over to the other side, working for a St Louis area credit union since 2010! [LCMS member & Pastor’s wife!]

    Wasn’t LCEF’s reason for being to loan money for the building of new LCMS churches?

    Is this new credit union for LCMS members only, or a mirror image of Thrivent, the “Christian fraternal”?

    [See also, Lutheran Church Canada, ABC district’s investment group, currently in default….
    The CEF up there provided startup money, too.]

    1. LFCU Response says:

      The new credit union sponsored by LCEF is solely limited to serving LCMS congregation members, LCMS church workers, LCMS schools and their students, and entities/agencies of the LCMS.

    Very excited about this venture. Thank you LCEF!
    Will there be employment opportunities posted in conjuction with the opening?
