In 2022 Family Enterprise USA conducted a survey of 300 American family businesses and determined some of the following.
- 79% of family businesses operate as something other than a C Corporation which is why “pass through legislations” is so important to them
- Top business Risks for 2022 are 1) market turndown, 2) availability of labor, 3) government regulation and 4) inflation
- Top Economic policy in order of importance is 1) reducing income tax, 2) reducing federal deficit, 3) reducing or eliminating estate tax, and 4) reducing regulations
