WASHINGTON, DC (June 17, 2020) Below is a statement from Connected Commerce Council (3C) President Jake Ward regarding Intuit’s new tool to help small businesses determine their eligibility for federal assistance programs.
“3C and our 10,000 small businesses applaud Intuit for creating a new digital tool to help small businesses navigate the many federal Covid-19 assistance programs. Digital tools and platforms – including Intuit’s accounting, payroll and tax software – have helped millions of small businesses before and throughout the pandemic. This new offering will help many businesses learn about government programs that they may not be aware of, which is good for those businesses and our economy.
“Recent 3C research found that during the Covid-19 crisis, 76% of small businesses are relying more on digital tools than before, and nearly one-third of businesses said that without digital tools they would have had to close all or part of their business during the COVID crisis. Hopefully this new Intuit tool will help even more businesses survive today’s challenges.”
