SBIA to House Leaders: Preserve QSBS Exclusion
The Qualified Small Business Stock framework encourages long-term investment in early-stage companies, helping them grow and create jobs.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (October 1, 2021) – The Small Business Investor Alliance (SBIA), the association for private equity funds investing in American small businesses, joined a coalition letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, urging policymakers to preserve the Qualified Small Business Stock (QSBS) exclusion that successfully bolsters investment in innovative small businesses and startups. As currently written, the Budget Reconciliation bill would diminish these incentives that are critical to helping draw long-term investment to early stage small businesses, enabling them to grow and create jobs.
