The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012
In order to avoid the “fiscal cliff,” yesterday Congress passed The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. While the bill does take some positive steps on the tax side for business owners, it fails to address the core fiscal problems facing our nation. There was no attempt to control spending though this legislation and it merely delayed discussion on sequestration and its automatic budget cuts for two months. NLBMDA remains concerned about the economic uncertaintly that will continue as a result.
