Job Creators Network Runs Full-Page Ads Supporting the Administration’s Proposed Small Business Tax Breaks

By relieving small businesses of high tax burdens, they can hire more employees and strengthen the economy

Atlanta—The Job Creators Network is running two full-page ads in the Wall Street Journal this week to push the conversation surrounding small business tax reform forward. Legislation called the Bring Small Businesses Back Tax Reform Act (H.R. 1425) has already been introduced in the House and does just that by lowering the small business tax rate to between 12 and 25. And the Trump Administration has also recently proposed a similar plan that would lower it to 15 percent—a recommendation that should be seriously considered by Congress. If implemented, small businesses will be able to use more of their own revenue to grow their enterprises.

The first full-page ad is running today (Wednesday) and reads “Lower Tax Rates, More Jobs, Got It?” View the Wall Street Journal ad here.

The second full-page ad will run on Thursday and portrays a bulls-eye on a dart board with the message “Lower taxes + Less Red Tape = More Jobs.” View the Wall Street Journal ad here.

Alfredo Ortiz, the President and CEO of the Job Creators Network, released the following statement:

While general tax reform is an admirable goal, lawmakers should rally around a tax proposal that everyone—Republicans, Democrats, and Independents—can get behind, small business tax reform. The Administration’s already proposed small business tax rate of 15 percent will give small businesses the opportunity to hire more employees, expand their operations, and invest back into their communities. Not only will this tax cut directly impact small business entrepreneurs positively, but will benefit ordinary Americans on Main Streets across the country.
