Now that borrowers have exhausted their PPP loan funds, attention turns to the application for forgiveness process and issues. In this session we will look at the options borrowers have when applying for forgiveness, as well as the pros and cons of applying immediately for forgiveness or waiting a while before starting the application process. We'll also look at any recent developments arising as Congress considers additional relief provisions and the Administration begins implementing their own programs, as well as the other tax provisions adopted during the year in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic.
