The U.S. Small Business Administration has released a 1-page form that makes it easier to apply for the cancellation of Paycheck Protection Program loans. The form also contains newly updated forms to comply with the most recent stimulus legislation.
The COVID-19 relief plan that Congress passed last month revived the PPP with $284 billion in funding for small businesses seeking forgiven loans to help to deal with the effects of economic collapse of the coronavirus epidemic. It also included a requirement that the SBA to issue streamlined forms within 24 days of the bill being signed into law to simplify the procedure of applying for forgiveness. It also included conditions designed to facilitate more bank loans by community banks, particularly for minority-owned businesses that were unable to obtain loans last year.
Ed Zollars, a partner with Thomas, Zollars & Lynch CPAs, wrote that the Small Business Administration fulfilled the requirement to issue the one-page form for PPP loan forgiveness within 24 days of the date of enactment under the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 20,21. The article was posted on the Current Federal Tax Developments blog of Kaplan Financial Education. “The agency also released updated forms.”
