AFP - Help New Hampshire Small Business Owners

Dear Taxpayer,

Small Business Owners, the NH legislature is about to determine YOUR ANNUAL COMPENSATION !!! On Thursday, January 14, 2010 in Concord, the House Ways and Means Committee will be holding a pubic hearing at 9:00 AM in LOB 201-203 on HB 1607. What is HB 1607? Great Question.

HB 1607 … is the legislation that, if passed, will allow the legislature to determine how much compensation you, as a small business owner, can receive!!! If YOUR elected officials determine a business owner has compensated him/herself over what is “Reasonable,” you and your business will be required to restate your earnings, which will trigger a combined 13.5% new tax on both your small company and your personal income above the “Reasonable Compensation” level.

What ever happened to allowing business owners to work hard and determine his/her own compensation? The tax and spend liberals don’t like this notion because it reduces the amount of revenue the State can collect and spend.

Your elected officials can determined that $50,000 in compensation is “Reasonable” regardless of the size of your LLC or sole proprietorship.

The only way to prevent this from being law is to contact the members of the House Ways and Means Committee. Click here to contact your representative.

Below are the Members of the Ways and Means Committee. Please call YOUR Representative first. Also be sure to E-mail AND CALL all of the Committee members.
