Warning: New Biden policy is about to crush small businesses in 2024

A new Biden rule is about to blindside 32 million small businesses with traps that could land entrepreneurs in jail.

The Corporate Transparency Act goes into effect on January 1, 2024, and has been marketed as a way to prevent money laundering — but it suspiciously only targets the smallest of small businesses.

“What this looks like is, ‘Let’s attack the smallest business owners that we have in our economy and get them to close their doors!' That’s what it feels like to me,” Glenn Beck explains.

Former investment banker Carol Roth agrees.

“It’s part that, and it’s part a massive data collection program that nobody knows about,” Roth tells Glenn.

“If you’re a single-member LLC or if your business has an S corp, even if you don’t have employees, you’re impacted,” Roth continues, adding that those businesses will “have to register with a group that’s out of the treasury called FINSEN, which is the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.”

However, if you’re a large business owner with at least 20 employees and $5 million in revenue, you’re exempt.

“What crappy money launderer are you that you’re not at least making $5 million?” Glenn comments, shocked.

“You’re money laundering for Doritos,” Roth laughs. “That’s what the ridiculousness of it is, the burden, the invasion of privacy, the collection of small business information.”

Meanwhile, Hunter Biden, who makes $5 million in one job, walks free.

It will cost small businesses $85 to prepare and submit the initial beneficial ownership information report.

“And if you don’t do it exactly right, a massive fine is coming your way,” Glenn says, to which Roth adds, “Not only fine, but you could also go to jail.”

The jail penalty is enforced if a small business owner does not participate.

The rule was proposed in January 2020 when Trump was still in office.

“It went to his desk, both houses voted for it, went to his desk — he vetoed it,” Glenn says.
