Member Price $119.00

Non-Member Price $137.00


A significant allure to the PPP loans is that they are fully forgivable. Many borrowers will be surprised when they apply for loan forgiveness that their entire loan is not forgiven. They will immediately turn to their trusted advisors and ask for help. That is the time when they will learn there are income tax consequences to accepting a PPP loan as well. This course will examine the income tax consequences of PPP loans and forgiveness. In order to make informed decisions and provide competent tax advice to clients, tax practitioners must understand how clients were granted various loans, when the loans were approved and disbursed, how the loan funds were utilized, and how (and how much) any forgiveness was determined. Each of these pieces of information are needed to prepare accurate income tax returns, claim only credits allowable to the clients, pay employer taxes when required, and calculate the amount of income tax deductions when PPP loan proceeds are forgiven.
