While the deadline gives everyone some breathing room, there are several different permutations that will be calculated to determine the best way for you to file for forgiveness. And there will be a flood of applicants at the end of the year. For your sake (and your tax professional’s), don’t wait until the holidays to figure this out. Depending on your situation, it may be advantageous to submit your application earlier, particularly if you think you can get the full amount forgiven. If you need until the end of the year to bring employees back on payroll, however, it may make sense to wait (since the “FTE safe harbor” rule extends to 12/31 as well). Contact us to discuss your situation and make a plan for filing your application. Remember, after filing, your bank has 2 months to approve the application and then the SBA has 3 months to agree, then 6 months after that – payments start – if you owe them.
