Tell us a little about National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).
NFIB is the nation’s leading small-business business association. We have offices in all 50 state capitols and in Washington, D.C.
 
What is an interesting fact about your company?
This is NFIB’s 75th anniversary. We were founded in 1943 by C. Wilson Harder. His goal was to help the voices of small and independent businesses be heard in the halls of government.
 
Why are you a member of ITA?
NFIB and its members in Iowa believe in the mission of ITA. Through sound tax policy comes great economic growth. We are honored to partner with ITA in advocating for better tax policies in Iowa.
 
What is your biggest challenge when it comes to tax policy?
Taxes are the top current economic concern for small business owners, according to NFIB Research Foundation’s monthly Small Business Economic Trends Survey and Iowa ranks 40th in the 2018 State Business Tax Climate Index from the independent tax policy research organization The Tax Foundation. We need significant rate reductions across the board in Iowa to help capture the unbelievable growth happening across the United States.
