How does the debt forgiveness provision affect my tax planning?
Forgiven indebtedness resulting from the PPP will not be viewed by the IRS as taxable income.
How is the unforgiven debt handled?
Any loan amounts not forgiven will be carried forward as an ongoing loan with a 2-year term and a 1.00% interest rate. There will be no prepayment penalty.
What are the fees associated with this financing?
There will be no lender origination fees borne by the applicant, as SBA will pay these on their behalf.
When do I need to start paying interest on my loan?
All payments are deferred for 6 months; however, interest will continue to accrue over this period.
