Today, American workers are in the Rose Garden to share how the recently-enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act – the first major overhaul of the tax code in a generation – is helping them achieve their very own American Dream.
Whether it’s due to tax reform’s more competitive tax rates for all businesses or by allowing all businesses to immediately deduct the cost of new investments, job creators are sending less of their hard-earned money to Washington. And they’re feeling pretty good about that. In fact, the MetLife & U.S. Chamber of Commerce Small Business Index found that small businesses are feeling more optimistic in the strength of the U.S. economy because of tax reform, and the RSM US Middle Market Business Index found that business optimism is at an all-time high thanks to tax reform.
Ahead of the U.S. Chamber’s “Tax Cuts at Work” event, two business owners shared with us how they are putting their tax reform optimism into action:
John Biagas, President and CEO, Bay Electric:
Melissa Bercier, PhD, LCSW, Founder and President, Couch Clarity:
It’s clear that American workers, families, and job creators are seeing real benefits thanks to tax reform, and Main Street is undergoing a new era of economic growth. We look forward to hearing from more business leaders about how tax reform is growing paychecks, increasing investment, and creating jobs across the country.
