U.S. Rep. Terry Sewell met virtually today with NFIB State Director Rosemary Elebash, NFIB Government Relations Vice President Kevin Kuhlman, and small business owners from throughout the 7th District to discuss issues of critical importance to Alabama’s job creators. 

“On behalf of our members, I want to thank Representative Sewell for taking the time to talk with us about the importance of easing the tax burden on small businesses and supporting Alabama’s agricultural sector,” Elebash said. 

Specifically, they discussed the increase in the corporate tax rate on small C-corporations and newly proposed family business tax changes including the elimination of stepped-up basis and capital gains tax increases that would impact family-owned businesses and farms.
