PPP Loan Forgiveness

If your PPP loan amount was less than $150,000, you can use the forgiveness Form 3508S (unless your business has a contract or agreement of affiliation with other businesses and the PPP loan total across all affiliates is greater than $2 million).

Among other things, you will be asked to certifiy that:

  • The amount requested:

    • is not greater than the PPP loan amount

    • was used to cover eligible costs for forgiveness

    • includes eligible payroll costs of at least 60% of the loan forgiveness amount, and

    • was used within the covered period

  • The information provided in the application and supporting documentation is true

  • Any tax documents provided are accurate and consistent with what has been or will be provided to the IRS

While it is not required that you submit supporting documents at the time you apply, additional information may be requested by the SBA at any time. All records relating to the PPP loan must be kept for at least six years after the loan is either forgiven or paid off.  By submitting a forgiveness application, you are permitting the SBA to request any of these documents at any time during those six years.

You may apply for forgiveness for eligible expenses incurred over the stated 8 to 24 week period, starting from the day you receive your PPP loan.

"I've been a member since the Credit Union was just Dave Knoll with a cardtable in the hallway of the old Genesee Coop on Saturday mornings. I've never been tempted to go anywhere else since that time, even though I now live thirty miles away. I like dealing with nice staff who know my name, who are eager to help, and who are dedicated to financial literacy and empowerment. Plus, it's good to know that my money is being used to invest in people rather than fill the pockets of the wealthiest.

In addition to savings and checking I've turned to the credit union for debit cards, line-of-credit, auto financing, on-line banking, and a home mortgage. I've now financed at least four cars through the credit union, and I've successfully encouraged friends to do the same.

One of my boldest statements ever in the face of raw financial power was when the car dealer required me to sit through a presentation on their financing. My response: "I'm a loyal credit union member, and I'll stick with it even if you offer me zero percent. If I ever get in trouble, the Credit Union will help me work it out, but you guys'll just send the collection agent after me." The guy just gulped and that was that.


And I don't want to forget to mention that as a Credit Union member I get to vote. Real democracy - awesome!

Genesee Co-op Federal Credit Union - it's the best deal in town!"
