Comments on: Small businesses need cash, not rhetoric Grow your own Thu, 26 Mar 2015 12:32:24 +0000 hourly 1 By: bizsmall Wed, 22 Sep 2010 22:01:55 +0000 All true. If Congress really wants to help small business, it needs to think a lot smaller. Tax credits/deductions are worthless without profit. Real tax reform for small business must recognize the essential differences between big and small. One thought…allow all small businesses with gross receipts of $10M or less, retain, without any tax, (at either the corporate or ownership level) earnings of up to $50,000, provided it is re-invested in the business.
