The Alliance Membership Grows and Communication Efforts Thrive
Affirmed as an advocate for small businesses, the Alliance continued to strive for health care and tax improvement. In 2000, the Internal Revenue Service increased the threshold for filing monthly employment taxes from $1,000 to $2,500, making it possible for approximately 1 million small businesses to file quarterly rather than monthly.
The Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 passed, ticking off another success on the Alliance charts. The act lowered marginal estate tax rates, increased the federal estate tax exclusion, increased the annual contribution limit for traditional and Roth IRAs, and made it easier for Alliance Members to invest more money in their businesses and in their futures.
Throughout 2002, the Alliance continued work to forge solid, lasting relationships with key coalitions in Washington, D.C. In fact, the Association introduced the Alliance Advocacy Report, which featured news on the latest issues and pending legislation.
As membership in the Alliance grew, the Association worked to meet the communication needs of a growing force of small-business owners and the self-employed. The Alliance Advance e-newsletter was introduced in 2003 as a means to produce information quickly and conveniently to members.
