Graves: Our plan brings a clear vision of tax reform and prosperity to Missouri

One of the many reasons I am thankful to be your Representative in Congress is that it gives me the opportunity to travel throughout our great state and meet with Missourians from all walks of life.
Today, I was honored to share this experience with President Trump as we visited with small business owners in Eastern Missouri. Missouri has suffered tremendously due to our out-of-date tax system and this trip provided a unique opportunity for the President to see first-hand the positive effects that meaningful tax reform will have on family-owned businesses in Missouri and throughout the United States.

As the former chairman of the House Small Business Committee, I could not stress enough that our small businesses are the engines that drive our nation’s economy. Simplifying the tax code and lowering taxes across the board has always been a goal of mine to ensure that small businesses are allowed to grow, thrive and create stronger local economies.

The number one concern among small business owners that I’ve spoken with in Missouri is the harm caused to them by our costly and complex tax code. The current code simply stacks the odds against them when it comes to cost, compliance, and filing.

The House Republican tax bill will ease the burdens small businesses will face and ensure that they keep more of their hard-earned money to invest, grow and create jobs.

Our country is built on big dreams and unshackling our small businesses is why tax reform needs to become a reality.

Our plan brings a clear vision for tax reform and prosperity to Missouri. I look forward to joining the President in bringing much-needed relief to small business owners across the country and building for a stronger America.
