Gusto Sends Letter to North Carolina Senate in Support of SMB Relief Legislation 

Steve Abbott

On June 14, 2022 Gusto sent a letter to the North Carolina Senate in support of S 805 which would appropriate $250 million to help aid small businesses in the state. The relief is targeted at SMBs who had less than $8M in gross revenue in 2019 and saw at least a 25% reduction in sales tax collections as a result of COVID-19. Qualifying businesses can earn grants up to $250,000.
