My wife and I have run a small IT firm for 18 years. Cost of healthcare and the loss of a handful of clients over recent years, prevented us from giving ourselves much needed cost-of-living raises for many years and personally we were not making ends meet. The tax cut changes allowed us to bump our salaries for the first time in 8 years, enough to pay our bills again. Things were so tight, we were seriously considering the future of the company. Things have now settled down. We can make payroll again, and we’re now looking ahead to some potential growth.
