SBIA expresses support for BDC tax parity bill

August 18, 2023 (Washington, D.C.) – The Small Business Investor Alliance (SBIA), the leading association representing Business Development Companies (“BDCs”) and lower middle market private equity and its investors, applauded bipartisan legislation introduced by U.S. Reps. Jodey Arrington (R-TX), Brendan Boyle (D-PA), Darin LaHood (R-IL), and Danny Davis (D-IL) that would level the playing field to allow BDC investors the same 20 percent deduction on Qualified Business Income that REITs and S-Corp banks received in the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

“Fixing this part of our tax code will encourage investment in America’s growing businesses and build a stronger economy,” said SBIA President Brett Palmer.

SBIA looks forward to working with Congress to move the bill forward.
