The Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017 tax law gives big corporations an enormous 40% tax cut but does little to help small businesses. Our research shows the majority of small business owners say it hasn't helped their profitability or success and they support rolling back corporate tax cuts to pay for policies that help small businesses. Businesses for Responsible Tax Reform believes Congress must support tax policy that helps small businesses achieve their full economic potential.

The numbers are in, and most small businesses say the Trump tax cuts had no impact, or a negative impact, on their business. 


What about you? Did your taxes go down? Did the law deliver enough savings for you to hire a new employee or invest in your business? Was doing your taxes easier than before? Or did all the promises around the law fall flat?


Businesses for Responsible Tax Reform wants to hear all about it.


Please fill out the form and we'll be in touch to hear your story about how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has impacted real small businesses.


Stories like yours are important to letting Congress know how to get tax reform right!
