The Bull Case for a Bipartisan Fiscal Cliff Deal

For years we’ve been sounding the alarm over the 2025 “fiscal cliff,” a watershed moment that will force lawmakers to address a litany of expiring tax provisions or risk a massive tax hike on families and Main Street businesses.  Below is a look at what’s at stake for Main Street businesses and our bull case for Congress taking action next year.

Sunsets and Families

One TCJA myth is that it benefited big corporates and billionaires only. That’s simply not true. Much of the tax relief targeted at corporations and wealthy individuals was paired with significant revenue raisers, while the tax relief targeting

Talking Taxes in a Truck Episode 37: Carol Roth Explains Why It’s Time to Repeal the CTA

Our latest podcast guest is Carol Roth, a New York Times bestselling author, small business advocate and most recently, a staunch ally in the fight to repeal the burdensome and ill-conceived Corporate Transparency Act.

Carol starts by talking about how her time in the investment banking world exposed her to the uneven playing field between small businesses and larger corporations, and how that experience led her to become a Main Street advocate. Later she dives deep into the CTA and its onerous reporting requirements, her recent testimony on Capitol Hill that focused on the new statute, and the many compliance horror

Main Street Backs CTA Repeal

Today over 100 trade associations, representing millions of small businesses nationwide, strongly supported legislation introduced by Representative Warren Davidson (R-OH) to repeal the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA).

Appropriately named the “Repealing Big Brother Overreach Act”, the legislation would put an end to the onerous and poorly-conceived reporting regime that targets virtually every small business operating in America. That effort will also be joined by Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), who plans to introduce a companion bill in the Senate early next week.

By way of background, the CTA took effect this year and requires small businesses and other covered entities to report

Fiscal Cliff Gets Renewed Focus

In a sign that lawmakers are not content simply waiting until next year to address a litany of scheduled tax hikes, House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith yesterday announced a series of “tax teams” tasked with identifying legislative solutions to avert the 2025 fiscal cliff.

Ten groups in total, each comprised of at least give Republicans from the panel, will address a specific policy area, from manufacturing to global competitiveness.

The team that caught our eye will focus on Main Street, and is appropriately led by Congressman Lloyd Smucker (PA), a staunch ally of the pass-through business community and
