An overwhelming majority of small business owners don't understand how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will affect them, according to a new survey of the self-employed.
The survey, by the National Association for the Self-Employed, found that 83 percent of small business owners didn't have a complete understanding of the impact the new tax reform law would have on their business. Over 90 percent of the 389 respondents felt the government did not adequately prepare them for the new tax system. Survey takers were split on whether they expected to pay more or less in overall taxes this year. Nearly 60 percent of survey respondents said they felt their taxes for this year would be more difficult to complete because of the new tax law. Over 90 percent believe the government should take additional measures to ease the tax burden.
