WASHINGTON, D.C. (Nov. 10, 2021) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, released the latest video in a series featuring small business owners explaining how Washington’s proposed tax increases would hurt the 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 Beth Booth, owner of Spaces Renewed in Southern California. Booth owns the business with her husband and employs 15 people in the construction and design industry. Booth explains that her business has used the Small Business Deduction to hire local small businesses to assist with marketing and creative efforts: “All of these businesses depend on us…Spaces Renewed is a great source of income for them and so as we keep that money, we’re dispersing it into our local economy here. We aren’t keeping it; it’s going out into all of these other small businesses.”
Curtailing the Small Business Deduction would directly hurt small businesses’ ability to hire, invest in their business, increase employees’ compensation, and threatens the fragile small business economic recovery.

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 the tax hikes and mandates.
