Issues Facing NFIB/Oklahoma

Stopping a new sales tax on services and labor

  • State legislators have recently suggested a new tax on services and labor as a way to bring revenue into the state. It would fall squarely on the shoulders of small business to collect and remit this new tax, and we will fight to oppose it.

Opposing employer mandates

  • Raising the state minimum wage, requiring companies to offer paid leave, and forbidding employers from conducting thorough background checks on job applicants would create unfair and unnecessary hardships on small businesses.

Saying 'no' government 'bounty-hunter' auditors

  • Legislation prohibiting state agencies from hiring private companies to enter your business and audit your books recently failed to advance. Business owners shouldn't be subject to unannounced audits by private companies claiming to represent the government.

Protecting property rights from unfair asset seizure and forfeiture

  • Law enforcement can seize a business owner's assets merely at the suggestion of wrong-doing. The property rights of a small business owner must be protected and fought for.
