The PPP program has ended and many financial institutions are reaching out to borrowers encouraging them to apply for forgiveness. At the same time, businesses that received PPP loans are taking advantage of other COVID-19 benefits like payroll tax credits and other SBA programs. Now is the time to have a conversation and take a deep dive into the forensics of PPP loan forgiveness and the interplay with payroll tax credits. Can the IRS know whether a business received a PPP Loan? How should PPP money be spent to obtain full forgiveness? What is the likelihood of an SBA or IRS audit and what can you do now to prepare?
