Defeat any attempt to add sales tax on labor and services
A Tax "Reform" Task Force has been appointed to review the tax code.   Placing a tax on labor disproportionately impacts small businesses who must hire out services such as a CPA, insurance, repairs of equipment etc.  We will fight any attempt to place more tax burden on small business. This includes the continued fight to expand the tourism area meals tax to the entire state.   2014 will be a budget year and defense against tax increases will be our #1 priority.
 
Defeat additional healthcare mandates that add cost to premiums
We will fight to stop efforts to require small businesses to cover additional conditions and treatments. Such mandates may be well intentioned, but they drive up the cost of health insurance and make it harder for small employers to afford even basic medical coverage.
 
Continue to fight for the Sole Proprietor
The Unions and those who think the little guy don’t pay their appropriate level of taxes will always attempt to remove the 1099 status of an individual and force expensive filing for LLC or sub chapter S to operate – even without employees. NFIB will fight this thinking that presents itself at any level. Entrepreneurs’ do not need to be burdened with unnecessary tax structures that do not fit their business needs.
 
Fight for Small Business in Implementation of State Health Insurance Exchange
Kentucky is creating a Health Insurance Exchange as part of Obamacare. NFIB will be working to minimize any burdens that may fall on small business in excess of federal requirements.
 
Create Drug Free Workplace Program
NFIB is championing a program that will education employees about the dangers of addiction. If it is found that an employee's intoxication or drug use has caused an accident, the employee would receive no worker's comp benefits and would not be eligible for unemployment if terminated.
