Recent NFIB Pa. Pennsylvania Victories

Date: March 06, 2014

NFIB Kills the Death Tax
NFIB successfully led the fight to repeal the Death Tax on businesses with assets up to a million dollars. Now the heirs to a family business won’t have to close up shop or liquidate assets when the owner dies just to pay the tax.
Previously NFIB was successful in having the Death Tax repealed for family farms.

NFIB Repeals the State Tax on Small Business Loans
When small business owners loaned their company money from their salary, they had been forced to pay a state loans tax.  NFIB successfully got that repealed by explaining to lawmakers not only was it  hindering small-business growth, but the money was being taxed twice…once as income and again as a loan.
