Iowa small business owners are once again bracing for a potential HIT.

That’s the harmful Health Insurance Tax, which would drove up the cost of health insurance coverage for 29 million small business owners. Without Congressional action, the HIT will return in 2018.

Stop the HIT Coalition, including NFIB, is working on behalf of members for a two-year suspension of the bill, which would be accomplished by S. 1978.
