BRENTWOOD, Aug. 25, 2010—The National Federation of Independent Business has named Larry Hyatt of Brentwood as the 2010 Solveras/NFIB Small Business Champion for Tennessee.
Hyatt, a member of NFIB/Tennessee since 2005, is managing partner of Larry Hyatt & Associates PLLC, a Brentwood-based accounting firm specializing in state and local taxes.
“Larry’s activism speaks for itself,” said Jim Brown, state director of NFIB/Tennessee, the state’s leading small business association. “Larry believes in the mission of NFIB, and he’s always there to help clear a path for Tennessee’s small businesses to grow and create jobs.”
Hyatt serves on the NFIB/Tennessee Leadership Council, and he was instrumental in forming the NFIB/Tennessee Tax Advisory Council. Hyatt chairs the tax council, which advises NFIB on complex tax bills and challenges affecting its 8,500 Tennessee members.
During this year’s legislative session, he helped stop a bill that would have stripped taxpayers from seeking court remedy in audit protest proceedings, something that would have given state government a dangerous advantage over small business owners.
In the past, he helped stop local governments from using “hired gun” auditors to harass small businesses and fought to preserve an important tax credit for family-owned small businesses.
“Tax inequities and overreaching can put a viable enterprise out of business through poorly conceived legislation and rule-making,” Hyatt said. “I also believe it’s important everyone should be treated fairly on each tax issue. For those reasons, I’ll continue to encourage entrepreneurs and other tax professionals to dedicate time and energy to ensure lawmakers pursue sound public policy.”
In addition to his work on behalf of NFIB/Tennessee, Hyatt is a member and former chairman of the Tennessee Society of Certified Public Accountants’ State Tax Committee and a member of the Tennessee Society of Certified Public Accountants’ Statewide Advisory Committee. He also served two terms on the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ National, State & Local Tax Committee.
“Larry is the kind of member we know we can depend on for expert input and testimony,” Brown said. “NFIB is the voice of small business in Nashville, but it’s members like Larry who make sure our voice is heard loud and clear.”
