Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)
Guidance for PPP loan forgiveness continues to evolve. There are proposals being considered that would provide automatic forgiveness for loans under a certain dollar amount such as $100,000 or $150,000. Also, there is a possibility that a second round of PPP will be made available to certain businesses. Therefore, we recommend that you not rush into completing a PPP loan forgiveness application at this time.
