Biden Administration Takes Steps to Promote Equitable Access to SBA Relief

Posted February 22, 2021 in Mitchell F. Green, Robert M. Kramer, Articles, Asset Protection, Corporate and Taxation, Estate Planning and Probate, News
On Monday, February 22, President Biden announced the following changes to SBA's coronavirus relief programs to ensure equity: Specifically, on Wednesday, February 24, 2021 at 9 am ET, SBA will establish a 14-day, exclusive PPP loan application period for businesses and nonprofits with fewer than 20 employees. This will give lenders and community partners more time to work with the smallest businesses to submit their applications, while also ensuring that larger PPP-eligible businesses will still have plenty of time to apply for and receive support before the program expires on March 31, 2021. SBA also announced four additional changes to open the PPP to more underserved small businesses than ever before. While these changes are being implemented, SBA will work with community partners to improve the emergency relief “digital front door” and conduct extensive stakeholder outreach. And, SBA will strengthen its relationships with lender partners to advance equity goals, deliver funding efficiently, and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse. SBA will:

New IFRs For Paycheck Protection Program Second Draw Loans

Posted January 10, 2021 in Mitchell F. Green, Robert M. Kramer, Articles, Asset Protection, Corporate and Taxation, Estate Planning and Probate, News

On January 6, 2021, the SBA issued interim final rules (“IFRs”) regarding the implementation of section 311 of the Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Venues Act (the Economic Aid Act). The Economic Aid Act authorizes the SBA to guarantee loans under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which was established under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. The Economic Aid Act adds a second temporary program to SBA’s 7(a) Loan Program titled, “Paycheck Protection Program Second Draw Loans.” The SBA may guarantee loans under the PPP Second Draw Program under generally the same terms and conditions available under to borrowers through March 31, 2021 (“Second Draw PPP Loans”) that previously received a PPP loan (“First Draw PPP Loans”) and have used or will use the full amount of the initial PPP loan for authorized purposes on or before the expected date of disbursement of the Second Draw PPP Loan. The key differences between First Draw PPP Loans and Second Draw PPP Loans are described in the IFR, which explains the loan terms, eligibility requirements, and application process for Second Draw PPP Loans. The last day to apply for and receive a PPP loan is March 31, 2021.

PPP Borrower Tax Relief Under New Act

Posted December 30, 2020 in Mitchell F. Green, Robert M. Kramer, Articles, Asset Protection, Corporate and Taxation, Estate Planning and Probate
Under the Coronavirus Response And Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021(the “Act”), passed last week by Congress and ultimately signed into law,  PPP borrowers will now be able to deduct payroll and non-payroll expenses funded with their PPP loans, and will not have to include PPP loan forgiveness in income. PPP Loan Deductibility For the majority of existing PPP borrowers, the most significant change in the PPP rules confirms that, despite recent IRS rulings to the contrary, they will not lose the income tax deduction that was originally expected to be available for payroll and non-payroll expenses funded and paid from PPP loans, which expenses are normally tax deductible. The CARES Act originally provided that the forgiveness of a PPP loan would not be included in income. Shortly thereafter, the IRS issued Revenue Notice 2020-32, which stated that expenses paid from a  forgivable PPP loan would not be deductible. The Act now clearly indicates that expenses paid with a PPP loan will be deductible! The vast majority of PPP borrowers used their loan money to pay wages, payroll tax expenses, utilities, rent, and interest, which are all normally tax deductible.
