Tax Reform Uncertainty Now #1 Trump Administration Policy Concern For Small and Medium Business Owners
Wednesday, October 11, 2017

New Business.com survey shows that small and medium businesses owners are more worried about potential tax reform impact and ACA changes than they are about changes to NAFTA and DACA

NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Of the many proposed Trump administration policy changes, new tax reform changes would have the biggest impact on small and medium business (SMB) owners, according to a new survey released today by Business.com of SMB owners nationwide.

Tax reform would have a greater impact than changes to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), survey respondents said.

Tax reform was the number one concern for 52% of SMB owners, with 46% saying they are holding off on making any big decisions on their business while tax change uncertainty is the air. Changes to ACA are a major concern of 74% of respondents, with 33% of respondents ranking it first and 41% ranking it second.

Other key findings include:

    --  49% of respondents see tax bracket change as their biggest tax reform
        concern, while 30% were more concerned with changes to deductions.
    --  More than 49% of SMB owners say the ACA has harmed their business, and
        70% believe its repeal would have a positive impact on the bottom line.
    --  SMB owners are less concerned with changes or a repeal to DACA and
        NAFTA.
        --  Only 14% of respondents currently take advantage of the free trade
            tenets of NAFTA, and the majority of those respondents are in the
            manufacturing industry.
        --  Only 8% of respondents say DACA has a strong impact on their
            budgeting, but 25% of respondents did say their customer base would
            be affected if DACA was repealed.

"Tax policies really impact the bottom line for SMBs, so these business owners are watching Washington closely to see how these reforms play out and what the timeline for implementation might be," says Doug Llewellyn, President and COO of Purch, which owns and operates the Business.com brand. "Businesses always find uncertainty challenging to navigate, especially tax uncertainly.
