  • Tax Complexity,
  • Uncertainty over Government Actions,
  • Frequent Changes in Federal Tax Laws and Rules,

The cost of health insurance remains the most severe problem for small-business owners and is “critical” for 52 percent of respondents, unchanged from 2012,” the NFIB survey states.

Many of these concerns mirror what manufactured housing professionals have as their issues too A previous Daily Business News report indicated, hundreds of manufactured housing operations are members of the NFIB, which has a total membership of some 325,000 businesses.

NFIB has also indicated that its members prefer Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton.  This continues an NFIB polling trend from earlier in the year.
