The Strategy to Use for Your PPP Loan Forgiveness Process
Do not rush the process but be prepared for the forgiveness and the tax liability that may exist.
Webinar Date & Time: Wednesday, September 30th at 1pm CST. A 30-minute overview session.
Session Overview. Identify the vital elements needed to maximize your loan forgiveness and understand what liability may exist with your PPP loan. We will walk through practical hands on examples of what you will need to do to guide compliance for pursuing forgiveness.
Maximizing Forgiveness. Do not submit your forgiveness and unexpectedly need to return a portion of the funding. Identify how to validate that you followed the spend rules and properly documented your forgiveness. As of today, every lending institution will run their own forgiveness process. Some will be online using a short form and others will require more extensive support.
PPP Tax Liability. No one is talking about the tax liability. Unless the rules change, the expenditures made with your PPP loan funds are non-deductible. It will be taxed like regular income. A $250,000 loan with a 25% tax rate (your rate will vary) creates a $62,500 tax. We will walk you through how to forecast your year-end tax liability with the PPP tax factor so there are no surprises come tax time.
