The REST Act Supports Small Businesses! (H.R.3725)

The SBAC is strongly supporting legislation filed by Representative Newman designed to cut taxes on entrepreneurs and small businesses across the country. The Relief and Equity for Small Businesses through Tax (REST) Act adjusts Section 199A of the Internal Revenue Code to increase the deduction of qualified business income from 20% to 25% for business owners making less than $100,000 in taxable annual income.

Simply put, this means entrepreneurs that generate less than $100,000 in income will pay fewer taxes so they can grow their businesses.
