NASE To Congress: Put Self-Employed Health Deduction On Your Hearing Docket

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

Posted by Kristin Oberlander - On behalf of the 21 million self-employed Americans, the NASE is, once again, holding Congressional leaders accountable for the lack of true small business legislation in the 112th session.

Earlier this week, the NASE submitted a letter to the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Tax and Select Revenue formally requesting a hearing on H.R. 6102, America’s Small Business Tax Relief Act of 2012.

In June 2012 the NASE released its national health care survey, in which 85% of respondents indicated that rising health coverage costs have been detrimental to themselves, their families, their businesses and their “bottom line” over the past three years. Juxtapose this against the fact that in 2011, the number of insured self-employed was at its highest, 77%.
