  • New PPP Loan Forgiveness Form:

The SBA has created a short form for PPP forgiveness for loans under $50,000.  Please see the attached form.  It may also be important to contact your lender as many of them will have portals set up to submit this information directly.  This action is meant to help streamline the PPP forgiveness process to provide financial and administrative relief to America's smallest businesses while also ensuring sound stewardship of taxpayer dollars.  Find more instructions on how to complete the simpler loan forgiveness form and to view the Interim Final Rule on the simpler forgiveness process
