Get Started: Small business and the fiscal cliff

    By | Small Business


    Small business advocacy group Small Business Majority will hold a free educational webinar on Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 11 a.m. EDT on how the looming fiscal cliff could affect the small business community and what is being done in Congress to reform the tax code.

    The one-hour event will cover a variety of topics including what tax cuts might be expiring at the end of the year, how they would affect small businesses and what solutions Congress is currently discussing. Washington lawmakers are currently in negotiations on how to avoid tax hikes and deep spending cuts scheduled to begin taking effect Jan. 1. Without an agreement, nearly everyone's taxes will rise, and federal programs will lose some funding. Economists are concerned that financial markets may drop and that and a new recession could begin.

    A question-and-answer period will follow the educational portion of the webinar. For more information and to register go to:
