National Opinion Poll: Small Business Owners' Views on Taxes and How to Level the Playing Field with Big Business

Small business owners see corporate tax loopholes and accounting gimmicks used to shift U.S. profits offshore to avoid taxes as serious problems, according to an independent nationwide opinion poll.

They support increasing taxes on millionaire incomes, letting high-end tax cuts expire, and closing the carried interest loophole that gives big tax breaks to hedge fund managers.

These are among the key findings of a scientific nationwide survey of small business owners released by the American Sustainable Business Council, Main Street Alliance and Small Business Majority. Click here to read the report.
