You may be able to turn to your national and local government agencies for some relief. While a bailout on a grand scale may not be in the cards for small businesses, many national and local governments are creating and targeting programs or tax incentives to small businesses in an effort to fuel job growth. Tax incentives, delays in tax payments, small business loans and quick-turnaround times for loans, and provisions to help businesses compete and win government contracts are some of the solutions being offered. Various programs and tax acts will continue to provide critical resources to help small businesses continue to drive economic recovery and create jobs. Check with your government’s business and tax bureaus for more information on programs that may help you to fuel your recovery.
