By Staff Writer August 21, 2018

Thumbtack announced the results from its 2018 Small Business Friendliness Survey, ranking all 50 states and 57 cities based on factors including licensing requirements, tax regulations, and labor and hiring regulations. It's the largest continuous study of small business perceptions of local government policy in the U.S.


Thumbtack surveyed more than 7,500 local small business owners in 50 states and 57 cities to evaluate how easy state and local governments make it to start, operate, and grow a small business. South Dakota, Tennessee, and Alaska, and Fort Worth, Texas, San Antonio, Texas, and Columbus, Ohio are among the top states and cities for 2018, respectively, each earning an A+ for small business friendliness.
