Entrepreneurs and small business owners are optimistic about the future and are ready for a tax system that supports their dreams and growth.

Washington, D.C. – Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council) president & CEO Karen Kerrigan issued the following statement in response to U.S. Senate passage of the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” (or, as the parliamentarian has ruled, “An Act to provide for reconciliation pursuant to titles II and V of the concurrent resolution on the budget for fiscal year 2018”):

“Our nation and its entrepreneurs are one step closer to realizing significant tax relief and a much more competitive tax system that encourages the growth and success of their firms.  This historic tax relief bill is a powerful package that provides small business owners and entrepreneurs with the capital they need to invest, compete, and reward their workforce. Its pro-investment attributes will fuel an improving economy and create sustainable growth, which means more entrepreneurship, innovation, and better paying jobs.

“Small business owners and entrepreneurs congratulate every Senator who worked on moving tax reform forward and voted for this important tax package.  Entrepreneurs and small business owners are optimistic about the future and are ready for a tax system that supports their dreams and growth. We look forward to the final House vote to concur with the Senate’s action and the signing of this historic legislation by President Trump.”
