SBA Extends PPP Loan Safe Harbor Return Date

At Gettry Marcus CPA, P.C. we continue to stay apprised as to the status of the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loan updates as provided by the US Treasury.  Yesterday evening, the US Treasury released Question #47 as part of their frequently asked questions (“FAQs”), which was directly related to the PPP loan safe harbor return date.  

Below is an excerpt from the US Treasury’s FAQs*:  

Question: An SBA interim final rule posted on May 8, 2020 provided that any borrower who applied for a PPP loan and repays the loan in full by May 14, 2020 will be deemed by SBA to have made the required certification concerning the necessity of the loan request in good faith. Is it possible for a borrower to obtain an extension of the May 14, 2020 repayment date?

 Answer: Yes, SBA is extending the repayment date for this safe harbor to May 18, 2020, to give borrowers an opportunity to review and consider FAQ #46. Borrowers do not need to apply for this extension. This extension will be promptly implemented through a revision to the SBA’s interim final rule providing the safe harbor.
