On Dec. 27, 2020, the President signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 (CAA). The CAA continues federal unemployment benefits; provides another round of stimulus checks; extends and expands the Paycheck Protection Loan Program (PPP loans); provides guidance and new relief for PPP loan forgiveness; and extends more than 30 tax provisions scheduled to expire or to be reduced after 2020. The following are just some of the topics Don will cover in his CAA presentation:

  • PPP loan modifications including second round loans and deductibility of expenses allocable to loan forgiveness
  • New simplified forgiveness procedures for PPP loans of $150,000 or less
  • New expenses qualifying for forgiveness
  • New covered periods for determining PPP loan forgiveness
  • Retroactive increase in loan amounts for farmers, rangers and others
  • New entities can obtain a PPP loan (e.g., 501(c)(6)) organizations, housing co-ops, etc.)
  • Increased deduction for food and beverages
  • Extension of employer’s sick and family leave credits
  • Expanded sick and family leave equivalent credits for self-employed individuals
  • Extension and expansion of employee retention credit
  • Retroactive modification of NOL carryback rules for farmers
  • Economic impact payments (stimulus checks)
