PPP Loan Forgiveness Application and Calculators
The Treasury department released the PPP Loan forgiveness application. It’s 11 pages long – wow! You can find that here.
If you are trying to see what the loan forgiveness calculation entails, you can see the calculator developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA):
In the center of the page under Featured Resource, click the link PPP loan forgiveness calculator. It will down load an excel file.
There will be many calculators that you will find on the internet. Not all of them will be correct. You, the borrower, will still need to certify that the calculations are accurate. Beware of what “tool” you use!
Florida Reemployment – Changing Your Claim Date
Anyone trying to claim unemployment in Florida has probably encountered some problems. The state is trying to process as quickly as possible. They know there are problems, including issues with claim dates being wrong. This is the date as of when you want reemployment to start. If you need to modify your claim date you need to go fill out this webform:
Florida Reemployment Updates
Florida has released a new website for applicants, including self-employed people. The new site is http://floridajobs.org/
If you are still having trouble accessing the reemployment system (like I am!), I highly suggest reaching out to your local State Representative. I called mine and the aid I spoke with was very helpful. She sent me a release form to go advocate to the reemployment office on my behalf. Find your representatives here: www.myfloridahouse.gov
Update Webinar Replay
On April 22, 2020 I did an webinar updating information for the COVID-19 stimulus options. You can watch the replay here. Updates on the PPP, EIDL, unemployment, and how self-employed people can get assistance from these programs. The Senate approved additional funding so hopefully these programs open up soon to get financial help to small businesses!
Where’s my IRS stimulus check??
Still haven’t received your IRS stimulus check? You can check on it’s status with the IRS Get My Payment application here. You can also use this application to update your direct deposit information with the IRS.
Contact Your Senator!
Over a week ago I put in my loan advance request for the EIDL. As of Tuesday April 7 I’ve received $0 of that advance! The SBA has changed the rules on all of us, repeatedly. I called Senator Marco Rubio’s office and left a message with constituent services. They actually called me back, and emailed me a consent form so they can go ahead and speak with the SBA on my behalf. If you live in Florida please feel free to call Sen. Rubio’s office as well and also fill in this form. If enough tax payers complain, they can put pressure on the SBA to do what they are supposed to do. Find the form here:
On Friday April 3, 2020 I did a webinar on the various options available from the government. Did you miss it? Catch the replay below. Please note that the information presented is valid as of April 3, 2020, unless disclaimed in the video. This is a highly fluid area, with changes being made daily. Please check back often.
