The article focuses on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, first major initiative by U.S. President Barack Obama's to stimulate the stumbling economy. The package contains a number of tax incentives for businesses and individuals, some of which are of greater benefit to small business owners than others. Perhaps of greatest interest is an increase in the ability of a business taxpayer to increase the carryback of net operating losses into prior tax years.
