Statistics of the day - U.S. small business owners

Independent polling in the United States has an important new report out:
  • 92% of U.S. small business owners surveyed agree that U.S. multinational corporations’ use of accounting loopholes to shift their U.S. profits to their offshore subsidiaries to avoid taxes is a problem.
  • 81 percent of small business owners favor hedge fund managers paying taxes at the ordinary income tax rate, which currently tops out at 35 percent, rather than the 15 percent capital gains rate they pay now.
And much more. A most important piece of research. The summary is here; the full report is here. Hat tip: Nicole Tichon.

I agree with the point of the small business owners that millionaires pay less than their fair share in taxes but small business owners are paying taxes honestly.we need GE Rule for corporations.
