PROTECTING SMALL BUSINESS, PROMOTING ENTREPRENEURSHIP

CNBC on Tax Reform: Small Business Owners Running Out of Patience

A September 25 CNBC article notes that taxes are the #1 issue for their business, according to the third-quarter CNBC/Survey Monkey Small Business survey.  SBE Council Chief Economist Ray Keating, and members Jason Duff and Kristie Arslan were interviewed for the piece.  As the article points out:

Entrepreneurs consistently cite taxes as the No. 1 issue for their business. In the just-released third-quarter CNBC/SurveyMonkey Small Business Survey, taxes once again topped the list of “critical issues,” beating out other government-related factors — health care and regulation — as well as customer demand.

But business owners are losing patience with Washington, as many do not believe tax reform will impact their business, which means they have less confidence that it will happen this year.  Read the full piece and the observations of Keating, Duff and Arslan here.
