Costs Mounting for Massachusetts Small Businesses
For Massachusetts small businesses, 2018 is shaping up to be an expensive year. Between new taxes to help the state defray the cost of a ballooning MassHealth budget and a collection of cost increasing ballot initiatives slated for the November ballot, small business owners have reason for concern.
However, being well-aware of the new legislative proposals on the horizon is the first step in helping make a difference. Learn how to ensure your elected-officials are aware of how these proposals will impact your small business and your ability to create new jobs.
Join us for an update on the following:

  • EMAC – What is the new tax? And will it go away?
  • $15 Minimum Wage – How is Massachusetts an outlier?
  • Paid Family and Medical Leave – A $1 billion tax on employers AND workers.
  • Income Tax Surcharge – Did you know the so-called millionaire’s tax impacts pass-thru small businesses?
  • Sales Tax Rollback – A ballot question to benefit the business community.

Learn about these policies that will no-doubt impact your business!

The Greater Lowell Chamber’s mission is to provide opportunities for our members through education, marketing, networking and advocacy.
