Local entrepreneurs and business leaders met with Rep. John Carney (D-Del.) last week to discuss federal tax code reform.
Carney met with a handful of local business and startup leaders at The Archer Group’s offices in Wilmington. Carney’s goal, he said, is to have a system that can better support startups and middle-class families.
“Tax reform is an area of bipartisan interest,” Carney said. “Businesses should be making decisions based on business factors and the market, not tax implications. Small businesses and entrepreneurs are a large and growing segment of the economy, so as we look at making changes to the tax code, we need to include their thoughts and concerns.”
