PPP Deduction Expense Rules Explained


In case you missed the most recent clarification of the PPP Loan expenses for your tax information, here is the overview.


When businesses received the PPP Loan initially they were advised they could utilize the funds for eligible expenses such as utilities, rent or mortgage interest. Additionally guidance was released by Internal Revenue Service (IRS) stating expenses paid from PPP proceeds that was forgiven would not be deductible. Many businesses are concerned with the timing of when their loans could be approved for forgiveness.
