he Small Business Council of America (the ”SBCA”) is the only national organization whose sole purpose is to represent the interests of privately held businesses in the areas of federal income and estate tax, retirement, pension, health care and other employee benefit concerns. The primary goal of the SBCA is to enact and preserve favorable federal tax and employee benefit laws for small businesses (including family businesses) and their owners. The SBCA supports legislation that creates and maintains important economic incentives and opposes oppressive and burdensome laws and regulations. SBCA is the VOICE for the 20 million American businesses that are privately held. It acts effectively through the input of its members, its technically and politically skilled Advisory Boards, and its Washington, D.C. based Chair and Legislative Team. SBCA actively engages with key Congressional committees, including the Senate Finance Committee, House Ways & Means Committee and Senate and House Small Business Committees, by providing testimony on small business issues, participating in key legislative meetings and educating members of Congress and their staffs on issues of importance to small business.
