New Poll: Vast Majority of Accountants Say Tax Cuts Have Helped Small Businesses

Tax Day should call attention to the savings experienced by small businesses as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

Washington, D.C. (April 14, 2019)—In conjunction with Tax Day, the Job Creators Network (JCN) commissioned polling in order to find out what real tax professionals think about the impacts of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA)—chiefly how it’s affected their small business clients.

According to the national survey of 102 Certified Public Accountants—representing over 5,500 small business pass through clients across the U.S.—conducted by Research Strategy Group International, nearly 80 percent of respondents believe that the implementation of the tax cuts legislation has helped America’s small businesses. Moreover, almost as many also felt that the TCJA helped stimulate the economy (76%).

“It’s clear that the people who really understand the financial standing of small businesses know that the tax cuts are working,” said JCN President and CEO, Alfredo Ortiz. “The tax cuts legislation that was implemented in 2018 has allowed small businesses across the country to thrive, which has contributed to one of the strongest economies in decades. Americans should remember that this Tax Day.”
