The current tax system is a huge burden to Americans and directly impacts the success and advancement of our nation’s small businesses. We will see a dramatic growth in the economy if we can lower our tax rate and simplify the tax code. […] More than 98 percent of businesses in North Dakota are small businesses! By cutting taxes, we are putting more money directly into the pockets of the hard-working American entrepreneur.  Consistently as I travel around the country meeting small business owners, they tell me that they will reinvest in their companies and hire more people if they can get a more favorable tax rate. We are looking for aggressive reductions, and I have the utmost confidence in President Trump that he will not settle for anything less than that.’” [Small Business Administration Press Release, 9/6/17]
