Rokita Pledges to Advocate For Indiana Small Business Owners
As part of NFIB, or the National Federation of Independent Business’ Small Business Day, NFIB members here in Indiana met with Attorney General Todd Rokita to talk about small business issues.
“Free enterprise is the bedrock of what has made us the most prosperous nation the world has ever known. I regard NFIB members as cherished friends and allies in the fight for liberty and appreciate the opportunity to interact with them today,” said Attorney General Todd Rokita. “Federal overreach is an enemy of American free enterprise. As Indiana’s attorney general, I’ll always do everything I can to stand beside you as together we fight tooth and nail for liberty.”
“Our small business owners here in Indiana are thankful that state leaders like Attorney General Rokita take the time and are listening to small business owners here in Indiana. He understands the challenges they face on a day-to-day basis and that’s what NFIB is fighting for every single day at the capitol,” said Natalie Robinson, NFIB State Director in Indiana.
NFIB has been on top of important legislative issues this session including HB 1002. The legislation would help entrepreneurs across the state by reducing business property taxes and the individual income tax rate. This would benefit all taxpayers, especially small businesses that operate as pass-through entities and pay taxes at the individual rate.
The original House version of the bill would have provided over $1 billion in tax cuts but… the Senate gutted it. That’s why your voice is needed to push for a reduction in individual income taxes and business personal property taxes!
The state currently has a budget surplus of $5 billion. Why should the government get to hold on to it? Contact your State Senator today and tell them small businesses deserve to get their hard-earned money back so they can reinvest it in their business and employees!
