Hoosier small businesses can get greater federal tax savings this year because of the first bill from the 2023 session that’s been signed into law.

The measure signed Wednesday, SB 2, allows small business owners who file individual income taxes (not corporate income taxes) to fully deduct their state tax payments from their federal taxes.

Previously, those deductions were capped at $10,000.
