dean-mantaAccording to a Manta.com poll of 1,741 small business owners who plan to vote in the presidential primaries, almost half listed the economy as the most important issue this election cycle. According to Dean Zerbe, former Senior Counsel to the U.S. Senate Finance Committee and alliantgroup National Managing Director, the economy remains the chief concern of small business owners struggling through a subdued economic recovery.

“The economy remains uncertain, with growth rates below historical post-recession averages,” said Dean Zerbe, national managing director of alliantgroup. “Small business owners see uncertainty with the Federal Reserve and interest rates, uncertainty in the markets, and uncertainty in the elections. All of this adds up to small business owners feeling nervous about the outlook for the economy and job growth.”

In a time of continued economic uncertainty, it is important for small business owners to be on the lookout for any opportunities that could help grow their business. Contact us today for more information on alliantgroup’s tax consulting services and how we can help grow your company.
