Kansas scores an “A” for small business friendliness

Thumbtack has announced that Kansas received an overall grade of an “A” for small business friendliness in its annual survey of business owners. The score is an improvement upon the state’s grade of a “B” in 2014, and matches the previous high grade established in 2013.

“Kansas has worked hard to ensure that our business environment is one that truly promotes small business success,” said Kansas Commerce Interim Secretary Michael Copeland. “This ranking by Thumbtack indicates that those efforts are having a positive impact on our business climate and helping small businesses thrive in our state.”

Small businesses gave Kansas an “A+” in nine out of 10 subcategories, including tax code, regulations, employment and labor, and ease of starting a business.

The survey drew upon data from nearly 18,000 small business owners. Kansas was among nine states receiving a grade of an “A.” Three states received grades of “A+.”
