Louisiana small business owner opposes new federal tax increases
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Jan. 19, 2022) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, today released the latest video in a series featuring small business owners explaining how Washington’s proposed tax increases would hurt their ability to operate, survive, and thrive.
The video series “In Their Own Words” features small business owners from around the country and is part of NFIB’s Small Business Survival campaign, a coordinated advocacy effort that highlights why tax increases would be harmful to America’s small businesses.
The latest video in the series features Wayne Rabalais, owner of Rabalais Business Consulting in Lafayette, Louisiana. They have been in business for over 40 years and specialize in helping small businesses with different business issues including tax preparation, accounting, and SBA loans.
“I’m against anything new…leave what we have alone and work with small businesses to where they bring more money home so they can inject more money into the economy. Any type of tax increase right now will be detrimental to small businesses in all areas, especially in south Louisiana, we’ve gone through several hurricanes…businesses are hurting. It would be the same as businesses that are going through forest fires, tornadoes, floods. The small business folks that we talk about provide almost 80% of all the new jobs in this country.”

The Small Business Survival campaign is a coordinated advocacy effort that includes targeted traditional and digital advertising, media initiatives, research, grassroots, lobbying, and other efforts that will highlight why tax increases would be harmful to small businesses while holding members of Congress accountable for their support of tax hikes and mandates.
