Your Voice Matters More Than Ever
Did you miss NFIB’s 2020 Virtual Fly-In?
Don’t worry: You still have time to make your voice heard to your lawmakers in Washington, D.C. You can join more than 1,700 fellow small business owners online as we take our message straight to Members of Congress this week and beyond.
NFIB has put together a series of key actions that you can take to speak up on behalf of your business in the fight to ensure a quicker recovery from the coronavirus pandemic and economic downturn. You can support our united voice of small businesses on three main issues.
You can sign an NFIB action alert on the following issues:
1. Pro-Small Business Pandemic Relief. We’re calling on Congress to enact another round of pandemic relief that addresses small businesses’ biggest needs – from targeted assistance to liability protections to tax relief to unemployment insurance reform to regulatory relief.
2. Protect Small Business from Surprise Tax Increases. We’re calling on the IRS to reverse its decision to disallow tax deductibility for expenses paid for using forgiven PPP loans. The IRS has ignored congressional intent and will subject small businesses to surprise tax hikes, which we oppose.
3. Keep Small Business Regulatory Burdens Out of Defense Spending. The House-passed National Defense Authorization Act contains an anti-small business mandate known as the Corporate Transparency Act. It would lead to higher costs, bigger burdens, and less privacy, and it has no business passing – especially in a defense bill.
Our action alerts make it quick and easy for you to get involved. We provide the issue overview and a draft message. You have the option to personalize the message and add your contact information. By providing your home and business address, our system can send your message to all legislators representing you in the districts where you live and work.
By taking action, your voice is magnified with other business owners, making the voice of small business anything but small. Past Fly-In participation by NFIB members resulted in significant wins like the historic 2017 tax cuts, the small business deduction, and making small business expensing permanent.
Your participation is essential. By making your voice heard to Congress, you’ll make a difference for your company, your community, and our country. And the more small business owners get engaged, the more NFIB can accomplish on your behalf.
As a leader in your community, we hope you’ll take action on these critical issues. You can also share them with your fellow small business owners to make an even bigger difference.
