SBA 504 Loan Expert, Chris Hurn, one of America’s PremierExperts™ Appeared On Fox Business News Channel

Chris Hurn, America’s PremierExperts™ honoree, CEO of Inc. 500 company Mercantile Commercial Capital and commercial property loan expert, discussed President Obama’s plan for small businesses on the Fox Business News Channel. 

Altamonte Springs, Fla. – March 20, 2009 – Chris Hurn, CEO of Mercantile Commercial Capital, LLC, which specializes in U.S. Small Business Association (SBA) 504 loans for small business owners who want to acquire or develop their own facilities, recently appeared on Fox Business News Channel.  Chris was asked to discuss small business and entrepreneurship, as well as his reaction to President Obama’s recently announced plan to help generate small business growth.  

Chris Hurn was named to America’s PremierExperts™ and has garnered attention due to his company, Mercantile Commercial Capital, being one of the nation’s leading SBA 504 loan providers, as well as his commentary on the state of the economy for small businesses on his popular blog,   Hurn recently proposed a “Small Business Growth Act of 2009” to jumpstart our economy into the future, which consists of seven solutions for growing small businesses, and in turn, growing the economy as a whole. The first three suggestions involve tax cuts or credits, while the other four address changes needed to current SBA Loan programs. 

On the Fox News segment, and on his blog, one of the steps that Hurn suggests is a payroll tax holiday for the remainder of this year. This, Hurn explains, would cause an almost immediate economic stimulus for both business and workers alike. 

“A payroll tax holiday would keep money in workers’ pockets and owners’ pockets. This equates to about 16% of compensation saved and immediately gives both parties more money to spend or invest,” Hurn said. 

“We also need to waive capital gains taxes permanently for those investors that make equity investments into start-up firms or successful small firms (those with revenues currently less than $100 million) in calendar year 2009. The reason for only limiting it to 2009 investments is that we need private-sector investments NOW, not in 2010 – plenty of cash already sits on the sidelines, but it needs to be put back to work and in the right areas where it will do the most good. Enacting this gives investors, who have lost hope in Wall Street and Big Business investments (where they have virtually zero control), the incentive to put their dollars to work in places where they may have a far greater influence,” Hurn continued.
