Issue Campaign Will Oppose Proposals to Increase Taxes and Mandates on Small Business
As small businesses find it increasingly difficult to fill job openings and they face rapidly rising prices, proposals in Washington would increase their taxes and create more regulations.
To protect small businesses, today NFIB announced the launch of the Small Business Survival campaign. The Small Business Survival campaign is a coordinated NFIB advocacy effort – with advertising, media, research, grassroots action, lobbying, and other efforts – to highlight why tax increases would be harmful to small businesses and hold members of Congress accountable for their support of tax hikes and mandates.
NFIB President & CEO Brad Close said in the announcement, “Small Businesses have been hammered by the pandemic and government-imposed shutdowns. They have spent the last year trying to help their employees, keep their doors open and are ready to hire and grow. But just as the small business recovery is beginning to take hold, Washington wants to hit small businesses with massive tax increases and new mandates.”
Both the proposed American Jobs Plan and the American Families Plan would increase taxes and mandates for millions of America’s small businesses, family-owned businesses, and farms. Learn more about the proposed tax changes in a written overview and in NFIB’s May 19 Webinar.
Brad Close continued, “Small businesses bore a huge part of the economic pain last year, are finding it increasingly difficult to fill job openings, and facing rapidly rising prices. With a record-high 44% of small businesses unable to fill job openings, it is unbelievable that Washington’s answer is to increase their taxes and create more regulations.”
