PPP Expenses Not Deductible if Reasonable Expectation of Forgiveness Exists (Regardless of Loan Forgiveness Timing)

Posted 8:15 PM by
This week, the IRS issued Revenue Ruling 2020-27, which dictates the timing of the non-deductible nature of eligible PPP loan expenses. Many had hoped that by delaying the loan forgiveness application – and, as a result, PPP loan forgiveness – until 2021, calendar-year taxpayers could shift the non-deductible event forward a year. We now have the IRS’ position on this issue: If there is a reasonable expectation of forgiveness, borrowers are out of luck. Chalk it up as another slight against PPP borrowers who have seen the benefits of this program deteriorate through a series of twists, turns, and about-faces all year.

New Rules Simplify Forgiveness for PPP Loans of $50K or Less

Posted 7:49 PM by
Late last week, the U.S. Small Business Administration and the Department of the Treasury issued an interim final rule (IFR) that simplifies loan forgiveness for borrowers that received Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans of $50,000 or less.
