Webinar: Tax Implications of PPP Loans
December 17, 2020
The CARES Act stated that forgiveness of a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan would be considered tax-exempt income, but it failed to address the impact of the associated expenses paid.
On November 18, 2020, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued Revenue Ruling 2020-27 which provides needed clarity on a taxpayers’ ability to deduct eligible expenses for PPP loan forgiveness.
