Paycheck Protection Program

The Small Business Administration will officially close the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) on August 8, 2020. You are not guaranteed funds by submitting an application.

Full loan forgiveness may be challenging if the guidelines are not followed.

  • Guidelines are changing frequently and businesses must educate themselves and make decisions weighing the risk of agreeing to rules and guidelines set by the SBA that are still evolving. Borrowers must also consider the possible tax implications. Since this topic is still in the state of flux, it is best to consult regularly with a tax advisor.
