Small businesses, including many tax preparation offices and perhaps your clients, make a huge impact on the U.S. economy each year. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, creating about two-thirds of the new jobs in the United States every year. In addition, small businesses comprise about 99.9 percent of all firms.
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, the president of the United States has issued an annual proclamation announcing National Small Business Week since 1963. This year’s National Small Business Week will be held April 30-May 6.
Whether you are an owner or employee of a small business, or do your part to ensure the success of your small business clients, happy National Small Business Week to you – and thanks for all you do!
