New York State’s small businesses are facing a challenging tax climate, made even more difficult by the impacts of COVID-19. As these businesses struggle to survive, it is important for both government and individuals to take steps to support them and improve the economic climate.
One way individuals can make a difference is by supporting local small businesses. Many people have unique and meaningful shops right in their own community that offer special gifts. Small businesses on Main Street, Market Street, Water Street, and elsewhere need our support now more than ever.
In addition to government action, individuals can also participate in events like “Small Business Saturday” to help support these businesses. This nationwide event aims to promote small businesses and make a positive impact. This year, “Small Business Saturday” will take place on Saturday, November 25th. By shopping at local small businesses and participating in this event, we can all make a difference for the businesses that are so crucial to the economy.
