SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS TOOK ACTION

Over the past few months, small business owners joined The Action in huge numbers. These are a few of our favorite actions.

More than 2000 entrepreneurs signed a letter urging Congress to extend tax cuts for the middle class and end them for the richest 2%.

New York State business owners worked with local activist to rally for tax fairness.

Small business owners and concerned citizens in Raleigh, North Carolina spent the National Day of Action writing letters to their members of Congress.

A Pittsburgh Republican explained that 97% of small businesses have a bottom line under $250,000.

“There are a lot of people in here who in small business but I don’t think any of us in small businesses have a bottom line where we’re making over $250,000. It really won’t negatively affect these small businesses.”

Thanks to these efforts, Congress extended tax cuts for 98% of Americans and 97% of small businesses. But our efforts are far from over. Call your member of Congress and tell them what you think of their vote on the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012.
