Writing in Monday’s Herald-Sun, our Jon Pritchett makes the case for federal tax reform to help small business.
I know firsthand how much small businesses would do with the kind of tax relief the president supports. I’ve owned and managed several small businesses in the sports industry. I know that small business is as important a part of American industry as it is a part of everyday life on Main Street. Right now, business owners everywhere are busy doing what all small businesses want to do: Attempting to grow operations to reach that next level of productivity. It’s a tough job, but the biggest challenge – those burdensome tax rates – is the easiest to surmount, if Congress delivers on its promises to small businesses nationwide.
Congress and the president should look to North Carolina for how to get tax reform right.
