Tax Reform
Draft Raises Serious Concerns


WASHINGTON, D.C., February
26, 2014
National Federation of Independent
Business (NFIB) Vice President of
Federal Public Policy Brad Close
made the following statement in response
to today’s tax reform draft introduced by Chairman Camp:

“NFIB has
long advocated tax reform that achieves lower rates and a simpler code,” said Close. “While we appreciate Chairman Camp pursuing
tax reform that lowers some rates, we are very concerned that this plan does
not address the core issues that are important to all small businesses:
simplifying the code, leveling the playing field for all businesses, and
addressing both corporate and individual tax rates.  We look forward to working with members of the
Ways & Means Committee and Chairman Camp to achieve comprehensive tax
reform that does not pick winners and losers based on size and type of business.”


NFIB’s positions are based on
member balloting and extensive research by the NFIB Research Foundation. NFIB
produced the survey Taxes and
Spending: Small Business Owner Opinions
last year that outlines the tax reform
priorities of small business owners.




is the nation’s leading small business advocacy association, with offices in
Washington, D.C. and all 50 state capitals. Founded in 1943 to give
small-business owners a voice in public policy-making, NFIB’s policy positions
are set by its 350,000 business-owner members, who send their views directly to
state and federal lawmakers through NFIB’s unique member-only ballot. NFIB’s
mission is to promote and protect the right of our members to own, operate and
grow their businesses. More information is available online at
