When Should Businesses Apply for PPP Loan Forgiveness?
Tax Senior Manager Scott Zickefoose offered insights to business owners on when they should consider applying for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan Forgiveness.
“Businesses are Weighing When to Apply for Paycheck Protection Program Loan Forgiveness; Advisers Offer Tips” Excerpt:
“Months after billions of dollars in federal government-backed loans flowed to small businesses across the nation to help them keep people employed during the COVID-19 pandemic, many business owners are now considering when to seek forgiveness for those loans.
The U.S. Small Business Administration, which oversaw the loan process, has opened up applications for forgiveness, but so far there hasn’t been a big rush among business owners to apply for forgiveness, some local business advisers say.
Instead, many are taking a wait-and-see approach on the chance that Congress will adjust the rules for forgiveness and possibly fund another round in what has amounted to a $669 billion program.
