Forgiveness application for PPP loans of $150,000 or less now available

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and Treasury published updated Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan forgiveness guidance and forms, including a one-page application for borrowers that received a PPP loan of $150,000 or less: PPP Loan Forgiveness Application Form 3508S.  The form seeks information about the borrower’s loan amount, disbursement date, employee totals, covered period dates, amount of the loan spent on payroll, and the amount of the loan for which forgiveness is being sought. Borrowers are not required to submit any supporting documentation with the application but are mandated to maintain payroll, nonpayroll, and other documents that could be requested during an SBA loan review or audit.

The SBA and Treasury released updated versions of two other PPP loan forgiveness applications: Form 3508 and Form 3508EZ. Borrowers must submit payroll and nonpayroll documentation when applying for loan forgiveness with those forms, which provide lists of the required documents.
