Besunder says it’s an advantage for small business owners to know how they can legally benefit from some of the new provisions of the law. She said, “If you’re running a small business, any break that you can get under the law, you should definitely look into and take advantage of.” She says some of the products small business owners can benefit from can be found at She said small business owners don’t necessarily have to be a tax expert but knowing the basics will help them run their business more efficiently.
