Padgett Represents Small Business at Congress

On Wednesday, April 10, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. the Committee on Small Business held a hearing titled: Small Business Tax Reform: Growth Through Simplicity. The meeting was held in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

The purpose of… the hearing was to receive testimony on several proposals to reform and simplify the tax code.  Over time, our tax code has become more complex and truly temporary, with tax relief being extended for one year, for months at a time or even retroactively. Taxpayers, and particularly small business owners, are spending more of their time and resources to comply with and adjust to onerous tax laws, instead of investing those resources and assets back in their businesses to grow. This hearing represented an opportunity for members to explore different proposals designed to simplify and reform the tax code.

Padgett Business Services is excited to have been the only tax firm asked to testify at this hearing on Small Business Tax Reform.
