Paycheck Protection Program
Many small business owners have applied for Paycheck Protection Program loans, created under the CARES Act as an incentive for employers to maintain payroll during the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you meet certain requirements under the program, up to 100% of the loan proceeds may be forgiven, and in addition, there will be no income tax implications! Notably, the SBA will fully forgive all loans under the Paycheck Protection Program, provided that all borrower requirements and documentation are met.
