Participation in Trade Associations

Our participation in the political process is designed to promote and protect the economic future of Equifax, our shareholders and employees, and we maintain memberships with a variety of trade associations in the United States for that purpose.

Set forth below are the names of U.S. based (1) trade associations, (2) tax-exempt organizations that write and endorse model legislation, and (3) 501(c)(4) social welfare organizations, in each case, that are engaged in U.S. lobbying activities, managed by the Equifax Government Relations department, and received annual payments from Equifax of at least $50,000 in 2021:

  • Consumer Data Industry Association
  • NEON Work Opportunity Tax Credit Coalition
  • Better Identity Coalition
  • US. Chamber of Commerce

The aggregate annual amount paid by Equifax to all such organizations in 2021, including but not limited to those named above, is approximately $1.25 million.
