PPP Loan Forgiveness & PPP Flexibility Act

Important Update (January 8, 2021):

As part of an end-of-year pandemic relief package, Congress has passed several changes to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and created a “Second Draw” PPP for small businesses who have exhausted their initial loan. Other changes impact eligibility for initial PPP loans, the loan forgiveness process, and the tax treatment of PPP loans.  On December 27th, 2020, President Trump signed the Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Venues Act (the Economic Aid Act) into law to provide continued assistance to individuals and businesses that have been financially impacted by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
