A majority of small-business owners feel that the U.S. tax code unfairly benefits large corporations over small businesses, and that corporations and wealthy Americans should be required to pay their fair share of taxes, according to results of a new national poll

The survey of more than 500 randomly selected small-business owners was conducted on behalf of Small Business Majority, an advocacy group founded and run by small-business owners.

The poll revealed small-business owners are concerned about creating a level playing field when it comes to taxes. In fact, 7 in 10 small-business owners believe their business is harmed somewhat or a lot when big corporations use loopholes to avoid taxes. 

“Small-business owners are well aware that America’s tax system serves to benefit the highest earners and largest corporations — leaving everyone else, especially small employers, to foot the bill,” said Small Business Majority founder and CEO John Arensmeyer. “We need a tax system that benefits those who are just trying to make ends meet each month, and while it is certainly true that small businesses could benefit from a simplified tax code, that system will only only help America’s job creators if it is accompanied by the elimination of costly loopholes that primarily benefit large corporations.”

Small-business owners also said they don’t want tax cuts to come at the expense of long-term economic stability. Seven in 10 small-business owners feel that tax cuts are important, but that not increasing the federal deficit is more important.

Notably, the poll found health care, not taxes, is the top priority for small-business owners. When asked to rank their top priorities, small-business owners named bringing down health care costs, creating a tax system that is fair to all and improving health care coverage as their top three concerns.
