1. Will I owe any fees on a loan under the Paycheck Protection Program?
No. Lenders are not allowed to impose fees on borrowers under the program.
2. When do I have to repay a Paycheck Protection Program loan?
If you don't apply for forgiveness, your first payment will be due 10 months after the program expires. All loans are due in five years, if not forgiven. If you have a PPP loan with an original term of two years, you can contact your PPP lender to request an extension to five years.
3. How does loan forgiveness work under the Paycheck Protection Program?
You can have up to 24 weeks of payroll costs forgiven, plus up to 40% of that amount if used for other forgivable expenses. If you use less than 60% of loan funds on payroll expenses, you will continue to be eligible for partial loan forgiveness, subject to at least 60% of the loan forgiveness amount having been used for payroll costs.
4. How do I apply for forgiveness for the Paycheck Protection Program loan I received?
