NWRA Backs Main Street Tax Certainty Act of 2023

Legislation Would Make 20% Deduction for Small Businesses Permanent

Arlington, VA – The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) joined with other trade associations on a letter to Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) in support of the Main Street Tax Certainty Act of 2023, legislation he introduced to make permanent the 20% deduction for small and individually owned businesses.

“We thank Sen. Daines for his leadership on this issue,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith. “Many of our member companies are small businesses that rely on the Section 199A deduction to remain competitive. We urge Congress to make this provision permanent.”

Making the Section 199A deduction permanent will help Main Street during this very difficult time, leading to higher economic growth and more employment. Separate studies by economists Barro and Furman, the American Action Forum and DeBacker and Kasher found that making the pass-through deduction permanent would result in significantly improved parity and lower rates for Main Street businesses.
