Tax Day 2024: Small Business Owners Urge Congress to Prioritize the Small Business Deduction

Date: April 15, 2024

Main Street Tax Certainty Act would make the Small Business Deduction permanent

WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 15, 2024) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, issued the following statement from President Brad Close on Tax Day 2024:

“On this Tax Day, small business owners want to see Congress take action and make the 20% Small Business Deduction permanent. Unlike their larger competitors, small business owners are at risk of a significant tax hike if the Small Business Deduction expires in 2025. As small businesses represent nearly half of the GDP, passing the Main Street Tax Certainty Act should be a top priority for Congress and the administration. We are encouraged that this important bipartisan legislation has been introduced in both Chambers and urge Congress to pass it.”

The 20% Small Business Deduction (Section 199A) allows small businesses organized as pass-throughs (S corporations, LLCs, sole proprietorships, or partnerships) the ability to deduct up to 20% of qualified business income and is scheduled to expire in 2025.

NFIB released a “Top 10 Policy Priorities for 2024” which included making the Small Business Deduction permanent as its top priority. The Main Street Tax Certainty Act, which would make the 20% Small Business Deduction permanent, was introduced in the U.S. Senate by Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) and in the U.S. House by Representatives Lloyd Smucker (R-PA) and Henry Cuellar (D-TX).
