According to a National Small Business Association survey, 38 percent of small business owners weren’t confident about their business’s future.  However, the recently passed stimulus package may provide some relief, and help business owners feel more confident.  Among the things the stimulus package may bring small business owners:

  • a tax credit for each employee hired
  • crediting a five year verses two year look-back period for business losses on taxes
  • contracts for new government projects
  • tax breaks for capital expenses
  • money for green companies
  • additional funding for the Small Business Administration
