Join Senator Villivalam, Representative Gong-Gershowitz and Small Business Advocates for The Introduction of Small Business Empowering Legislation

Senator Ram Villivalam and Representative Gong-Gershowitz will unveil legislation reinstating an extremely effective tax credit for small businesses. While politicians often overlook the small business community, Senator Villivalam and Representative Gong-Gershowtiz are putting it front and center with legislation providing businesses with under 50 employees a $5,000.00 tax credit for creating new, full-time jobs. These tax credits will be revenue neutral or revenue positive in as little as four years. This will help small businesses prosper, foster economic growth in local communities and create jobs. This legislation will positively impact small businesses across the state.
