If you received a PPP Loan or SBA EIDL loan in 2021, watch this video before you file your 2021 tax return, so you don’t overpay in taxes. That’s what we’re going to talk about in this video. 

Hello from FreedomTax Accounting. We’re an accounting firm where we have been providing quality tax and accounting services now for over 20 years. In this channel we provide strategies for small business owners, so they can achieve their financial goals. 

Now, for the last couple of months, basically since mid-2020, we have been providing many consultations to small business owners concerning their PPP and their EIDL loans. One of the most common mistakes that we have seen, this year and last year concerning tax planning with a PPP loan and EIDL loan, is that many business owners make the mistake of thinking that their PPP loan funds, and their SBA ideal loan funds, are income towards their business, and it is not. The PPP loan, the funds that you got from the PPP loan in 2021, and the funds that you got from the SBA ideal loan in 2021, are not considered business income. It’s a liability towards the business

Now, what’s happening is that early on in the PPP loan program, when it started, when the PPP started, the rule said that if you got your PPP loan forgiven, then you could not deduct the expenses paid with the PPP loan. So, in a sense it is taxable income. But what’s happening is, if you Google if PPP loan is taxable, those old news stories still show up, so a lot of people are still Googling that question, and they’re reading old news. But remember that all has changed, and the IRS came up with new rules saying that, if you got a PPP loan, it’s not income, you can deduct all the expenses even if you get it fully forgiven.

So, don’t make that mistake in your 2021 tax return. PPP loan funds, EIDL loan funds, those are not taxable income. So, don’t overpay in taxes.
