Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement seconding the call from Governor Chris Sununu that the Democrat legislature should repeal automatic business tax hikes:

“Governor Chris Sununu is absolutely right and the legislature should repeal the automatic business tax hikes set to go into effect," said NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek. "Our small businesses are suffering and to impose a tax increase on them would be disastrous to our economy. At a time when small businesses are struggling to survive, a looming 12.5% tax increase would shutter many of their doors, leaving many unemployed and worsening the current crisis. Democrats in the legislature need to realize that now is the time to reduce taxes and help get small businesses back on their feet, not increase taxes and put another hurdle in front of their path to recovery.”
