Will the Death Tax be the Death of the Farm? Not if this Small Business Organization has anything to say...

Note to everyone. Do you like to eat? We need farms. Do you enjoy local restaurants and shops? We need small business. They are in DANGER OF NOT SURVIVING. I know that sounds ominous, and that's because it is.

Please share this with every small business owner and farmer you know. Along with the proposed Death Tax: With the proposed repeal of the stepped-up basis, family members who inherit something when a family business partner dies, such as a building or farmland, would need to pay capital gains taxes on it. Additionally, the Administration’s proposal would nearly double this capital gains tax rate to 43.4%.

Right now in Washington, D.C., federal policy proposals are positioning some small businesses, family-owned businesses, and farmers for an even greater tax burden.

The latest plans include A new death tax for Family-owned businesses.

... the IRS will calculate the value of something that’s inherited – like a building or farmland – … this change would lead to 800,000 fewer jobs in 10 years and an additional 100,000 fewer jobs each year thereafter. ... family members who inherit something when a family business partner dies, such as a building or farmland, would need to pay capital gains taxes on it. Additionally, the Administration’s proposal would nearly double this capital gains tax rate to 43.4%. …  surviving family members may be forced to close or sell their family’s business to cover the larger tax bill.

Here’s what you can do. 

Call Terry Scott, your NFIB rep. Get details on how you can contact your U.S. Senators and Representative to oppose this harmful legislation. Get details on how you can submit your story to NFIB and also learn how you can join other farmers to defeat this threat by becoming an NFIB member.

Proposals currently being considered by Congress include the following tax increases and new mandates for small businesses:

Raising the corporate tax rate from 21% to 28%
Raising the top income tax rate on individually- and family-owned businesses from 37% to 39.6%
Expanding the estate tax’s reach through repealing stepped-up basis
Increasing the top capital-gains tax rate to 43.4%
Enacting the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act
Mandating that employers provide a paid sick leave
Establishing a new government-run family and medical leave program

The Proposed Death Tax may be the Death of your Farm and Small Business unless ...

 Friends, most know by now that Ask LLC (All Solutions Known) offers many products, services, and solutions to small and medium-sized businesses. The three main things we offer are Advocacy, Branding, and Cashflow Strategies. Today, I am sharing something very important from our Advocacy service; protecting small businesses from the proposed "Death Tax". 

Now Is The Time For The Death Tax Repeal Act To Reduce Small Business Regulatory Burdens

The estate tax, known as the death tax, is triggered when assets are passed on to children or family members. For small business owners, this can mean that once they pass away, their business may be severely impacted or even forced to close.

That’s why NFIB supports the Death Tax Repeal Act, which was introduced last month in the U.S. House and Senate to repeal the federal estate tax. The bills were previously considered in 2019 but didn’t proceed out of committee in either house. Now a new Congress has been seated and advocates against the estate tax are continuing the push for change, and you can help.

NFIB is leading a coalition of 89 stakeholder groups in support of the repeal, and today the coalition sent letters of support for the bill’s introduction to Representatives Jason Smith (R-MO) and Sanford Bishop (D-GA) who introduced the bill in the U.S. House and Senator John Thune (R-SD) who introduced it in the U.S. Senate.

Now more than ever, small business owners (and especially farmers) need to act today. We can no longer afford to stand idle. NFIB has fought for its members for over 77 years and we need to come together against this evil and dangerous threat. 

There are things you can do. 

1. Share this post, article, or whatever platform you saw this. 

2. If you are not an NFIB member, there has never been a better time to join. Contact me today. We can discuss an affordable membership. This is not about the money, this is about more members. Please, don't put this off. 

3. Tell us your story. NFIB wants to hear your story – call me and I will email you the link*. Your experience with this regulation can help us educate legislators. 

4. Tell your senators and representative. Call me and I will email you the link*.

*You do not have to become a member to get these links but we could sure use more members. With more, we can do more. 

If you would like to become a member, you can call me and I will register you over the phone using a credit card or check, and you'll get a receipt immediately via your email during our call. 

Or, you can right-click on the invoice form below, copy and paste it into a word document, complete it and mail it with a check. I will process it and you'll also get an emailed receipt as soon as I enter it. 

Below are the recommended rates. They are "suggested". If you are able, some farmers who believe in the cause choose $5,000 to $15,000 even though they have less than 100 employees. Others are so strapped that the $395 is difficult; we will work something out with you. It is more important now that we have the members in your area. Members are what make politicians take notice. 

The American Families Plan - are you OK with putting 3 and 4 year olds in public school?


The American Families Plan

Welcome back. We'll move forward with the next few paragraphs of the document. Please state your comments, concerns, and questions as related to you being a small business owner and your business industry and anything that may help others who read this; especially pertaining to this section. 

Read and comment on Part 1

To grow the middle class, expand the benefits of economic growth to all Americans, and leave the United States more competitive, President Biden’s American Families Plan will:

  • Add at least four years of free education. Investing in education is a down payment on the future of America. As access to high school became more widely available at the turn of the 20th Century, it made us the best-educated and best-prepared nation in the world. But everyone knows that 13 years is not enough today. The American Families Plan will make transformational investments from early childhood to postsecondary education so that all children and young people are able to grow, learn, and gain the skills they need to succeed. It will provide universal, high quality preschool to all three- and four- year-olds. It will provide Americans two years of free community college. It will invest in making college more affordable for low- and middle-income students, including students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), and institutions such as Hispanic-serving institutions, Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-serving institutions, and other minority-serving institutions (MSIs). And, it will invest in our teachers as well as our students, improving teacher training and support so that our schools become engines of growth at every level.

So, what are your thoughts? Will this, in your opinion, "... grow the middle class, expand the benefits of economic growth to all Americans, and leave the United States more competitive..."?

It appears that the intent is to lengthen the 12 years of schooling another 4 years and that is the "excuse" or reason to have taxpayers (business owners) pay for college. Is college the answer, or just what will these four extra years be in educating? We could certainly use more people in trades at this time than those with "head" knowledge. (I call this "hand" knowledge and "head" knowledge). 

Also, putting 3 and 4-year-olds in "school" takes the child out of daycare which will affect that industry reducing income for them but more importantly, will this give the government more time to "indoctrinate" or "educate"? Please present your thoughts. 

Is there anything I missed that you want to discuss?

Ter Scott dissects Biden's American Families Plan and asks Small Business Owners for Input

 In this series, together we'll "dissect" section by section, Biden's 

The American Families Plan

from a "business owner's" perspective. It is important to get your sincere feedback so I invite you to place your comments in the comments section below or feel free to use the contact form on this page. After each section from the actual Fact Sheet put out by the Biden Administration, I'll ask for your thoughts. Please return frequently to see comments, updates, and the continuation of the series. 

Later, this will be published as a compiled version so if you'd like a pdf of the completed work, request it using the contact form. 

Today, President Biden announced the American Families Plan, an investment in our kids, our families, and our economic future.

In March, the President signed into law the American Rescue Plan, which continues to provide immediate relief to American families and communities. Approximately 161 million payments of up to $1,400 per person have gone out to households, schools are reopening, and 100 percent of Americans ages 16 and older are now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine. The Rescue Plan is projected to lift more than five million children out of poverty this year, cutting child poverty by more than half. While too many Americans are still out of work, we are seeing encouraging signs in the labor market, as businesses begin to rehire and some of the hardest hit sectors begin to reopen.

Is this first paragraph true, mostly true, or mostly false according to your perspective? Why and what are your comments and specific points? Other comments? 

But the President knows that we need to do more. It is not enough to restore where we were prior to the pandemic. We need to build a stronger economy that does not leave anyone behind – we need to build back better. President Biden knows a strong middle class is the backbone of America. He knows it should be easier for American families to break into the middle class, and easier to stay in the middle class. He knows that we need to continue to enable those who dropped out of the workforce – particularly the approximately two million women who left due to COVID – to rejoin and stay in the workforce. And, he knows that, unlike in past decades, policies to make life easier for American families must focus on bringing everyone along: inclusive of gender, race, or place of residence – urban, suburban, or rural.

"... we need to do more", is this more rhetoric or sincere intent? 

The American Jobs Plan and the American Families Plan are once-in-a-generation investments in our nation’s future.  The American Jobs Plan will create millions of good jobs, rebuild our country’s physical infrastructure and workforce, and spark innovation and manufacturing here at home. The American Families Plan is an investment in our children and our families—helping families cover the basic expenses that so many struggle with now, lowering health insurance premiums, and continuing the American Rescue Plan’s historic reductions in child poverty. Together, these plans reinvest in the future of the American economy and American workers, and will help us out-compete China and other countries around the world.

Finally (for this section) do you think this "plan" will help or hinder the generations to follow? 

Thanks for reading this and offering your comments. Remember to return again as we will pick up where we've left off today. 

Make it a great day! Ter Scott

Ask LLC "What Business Needs"

Free Model Employee Handbook for Small Business ... Courtesy of Terry (Ter) Scott All Solutions Known


Model Employee Handbook for Small Business

This handbook is intended to assist you in creating your own custom employee handbook. The actual policies and procedures of your business may vary due to the size of the company, the number of employees, benefits offered, and other factors. So the handbook is intentionally broad and should be modified and supplemented to accurately reflect your company’s individual needs.

Ask LLC offers the three big things in offering, "What Business Needs". The very first thing and what I feel is the most important of the three is "Advocacy". There is no better advocacy group (in my mind; my opinion I know but it's based on years of being in business myself) is NFIB. 

NFIB continually, since it started over 76 years ago, assists small businesses in having a voice at their state capitals and in D.C. What's more, they offer so much for no fee; even to nonmembers. But please, as a business owner, you know that there is "no free lunch"; someone has taken the time to create something of value and there is always some cost involved. Having said that, I can ask you as a business owner to become a member of NFIB if you are not already a member. I'll offer that opportunity below. For now I have something for you that will help you and your small business for "free". 

Simply click on the image to download your Employee Handbook.

When you are at the page to download your employee handbook, you will be invited to become a member. If interested, please do not join on the site. As a rep for NFIB (this is not multi-level or anything, I'm an actual employee of NIFB) Rep # 3A687, I want to enroll you. You'll get my excellent and exclusive brand of personal service at least for the first year and then in subsequent years you'll be in very good hands with either our phone staff at the Nashville headquarters and your local area rep whoever that may be. 

Regardless of where you live and conduct your business, I am glad to enroll you. Please contact me using the contact info in the image below. I am always helping someone so there is a very good chance I will be unable to answer so please when you hear my greeting (Terry or Ter Scott) know that you can leave a private message for my ears only (it's my personal cellphone).
