TAXES: Don’t burden ‘rich’ small businesses

When politicians talk about “taxing the rich,” this includes not just rich individuals but small businesses earning more than $250,000 – regardless of how many salaries this money supports.

Many small businesses are now faced with 30 percent health care premium increases this coming renewal period and possibly the same next year, thanks to the unaffordable health care act.

This could be a disaster for many small businesses. Encourage legislators to tax rich individuals, not small businesses.
