Texas Small-Business Poll Ranks Top 3 Worries

The National Federation of Independent Business of Texas finds that the cost of health insurance, uncertainty over economic conditions and certain government actions are the top three worries of small-business owners in the Lone Star State.

 

That’s the finding of the Texas Problems and Priorities Survey, conducted in conjunction with the NFIB national Problems and Priorities Survey.

 

“The top concerns of small business in Texas reflect the unique business environment here, but still touch on the federal government overreach impact on costs and uncertainty,” says NFIB/Texas head Will Newton. “As predicted in our last member ballot and substantiated in this survey, property taxes continue to be a significant problem for Texas small business. They wrestle with a pyramid of taxation that includes property, inventory, equipment, and franchise, not to mention federal, county, and other taxes on income and sales.”
