Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO, released the following statement:

American small businesses and the hardworking taxpayers that rely on them are hurting. These are the entrepreneurs responsible for two-thirds of all new job creation in the country and they have been struggling under one of the highest tax rates in the developed world for years—it’s time for that to come to an end. The event on the steps of the IRS shines a spotlight on the tax struggles our small business owners have been experiencing just blocks away from where our country’s laws are written—ensuring that our elected representatives in Washington internalize their struggle and pass significant tax cuts for these hardworking entrepreneurs.
