National Federation of Independent Business says historic tax relief plan will ignite growth on Main Street
Washington, D.C. (December 20, 2017) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) issued the following statement today on behalf of President and CEO Juanita Duggan on the Senate’s passage of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:
“Small business owners have waited more than 30 years for Washington to pay attention to their biggest problem — high taxes. With Senate passage of the tax bill, America’s small businesses are one step closer to the tax relief they deserve.
“We are grateful to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for his skillful leadership throughout the process. We are especially grateful to Chairman Orrin Hatch for making small business tax relief a major priority. We are proud of the Senators who kept their promise to small business owners by supporting the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
“We look forward to final action in the House of Representatives. Small business represents half the jobs and half the GDP, and starting next year they will be able to reinvest more of their money, grow, and create jobs.”
