Help Small Businesses Create Jobs
Small businesses create jobs in every community, and architects are no exception. More than 97 percent of architecture firms employ 50 or fewer people; every project they design leads to job opportunities for millions of construction workers. But red tape, limited capital, and a complicated tax code hold them back. Congress needs to ensure that federal agencies work with small companies to help them succeed. More important, our small businesses need a simpler tax code that helps architecture firms grow without punitive tax increases.
