Welcome to NFIB
from Steve Schramm


Over the past decade, large corporations cut 2.9 million jobs in the United States, while independent businesses continue to create two out of every three net new jobs each year. You are the cornerstone of your community.

I’m Steve Schramm, a 30-year small business owner in the construction industry and Chairman of the Board for NFIB. I want to work with you on some of the biggest issues for independent business today. For example, 2017 ended with a historic victory for small business owners when President Trump signed into law the most ambitious tax cut plan in more than a generation. NFIB members played a big role in getting the bill through Congress, and as a result, the average small business will save thousands of dollars per year. This kind of progress is why I joined NFIB, and it’s why you should too. We must carry forward our momentum into the 2018 elections during this once-in-a-generation window of opportunity.

We need your leadership now more than ever. Will you join me and hundreds of thousands of other independent businesses in America?

Please Join NFIB Now to fight with us for yourself and independent business owners like you.

Tax Reform

of the new law include:

  • Pass-through filers earning under $315,000 (for married couples) can deduct 20 percent of their business income. For the typical small business with income of $100,000, that will reduce their taxes by thousands of dollars.
  • The bill doubles the standard deduction, from $12,000 to $24,000 for married couples, and from $6,350 to $12,700 for individuals.
  • It also allows small business owners to expense immediately the full cost of equipment.
