- All you Need to Know about the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and Economic Injury Disaster Loan (
All you Need to Know about the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL). The Trump administration announced a $349 Billion Relief Package for small businesses that are being impacted by the effects of the coronavirus. Many are having to close their doors to prevent the spread of the virus. This situation, in turn, has led to companies having to reduce the hours of workers or even let them go altogether. The Relief Package Program is a Part of the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) offered in Government - backed Forgivable Loans to help Small Businesses continue paying payroll costs and certain operating expenses. If you're a Business Owner, these are Two (2) Main Options, that are available for Small Businesses and Non- Profits to obtain financial support during the coronavirus outbreak. They are: CARES Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) And Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program (EIDL) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan: The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan is dedicated to guarantee Businesses, the loans they need to cover 8 Weeks of Payroll Expenses, along with some Utility and Rent Costs, as well as Payments of Interest on any Mortgage Obligation. Businesses will have to maintain Payroll fully for the Next 3 Months. It is important to note that the Loans can be fully forgiven, if the Businesses keep employees on Payroll or re-hire them by June 30th. Important Facts about PPP: To Apply for this Loan, Businesses can request 2.5 times their Average Monthly Payroll Costs. The Average Costs is based on the Total Payroll Costs for the Year 2019. Organizations can apply for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) by calling their Banks and Other Lenders directly after completing the Form/Link below on the SBA Website: The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan is forgivable, depending on whether Businesses lay off workers and how they use the Money. Repayment of Loans are deferred for 6 Months, with an Interest Rate of 0.50 % Fixed Rate and the Maximum Repayment Term is 2 Years. Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program ( EIDL) : The Loan Request Amount will be based on the Amount of " economic injury" that you have sustained, because of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The EIDL Loan can be used for a Broader Array of Costs, including Rent and Mortgage Payments, Salaries, Workers' Paid Leave and the Business' Operational Needs. Organizations can apply for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program and Advance(EIDL) directly through the SBA Website Link below: Once you submit your Application for the Loan, you can indicate that you are interested in the emergency Grant at the same time. Businesses who request for this Grant Advance, when approved will not need to pay it back, but the rest of the Disaster Assistance Loan will need to have to be repaid. Repayment of Loans are deferred for 6 Months, with an Interest Rate of 3.75% Rate for Small Businesses and 2.75% Rate for Non-Profits. The Maximum Repayment Term is 30 Years. Additional Information: No Collaterals or Personal Guarantees is Needed for the Application for each of these Loans. However, if the Proceeds are used for fraudulent purposes, the United States Government will pursue criminal charges against the Business/Organization Owner. One can apply for Both Loans, if you need to, but you cannot use both Sources of Funds for the Same Purposes. The $10,000 grant is a Loan Advance and does not need to be paid back, BUT If you also apply for the Paycheck Protection Loan Program, the $10,000 will be subtracted from the Loan Forgiven Amount, under the Program. If you apply for both Loans, it is advisable to let your PPP Lender/Banker, know that you have applied for the EIDL Loan. To get the Average Monthly Payroll Costs for the PPP Loan, it is advisable to use the Average of the last 12 Months' Payroll Costs. For New Businesses/Organizations, use the January - February 2020 Payroll Costs. You need to provide the Lenders, documentation that verifies the Number of Full Time Equivalent Employees on your Payroll Costs, Covered Mortgage Interest Payments, Rent Payments and Covered Utilities for the 8 Weeks Period, once the loan is Granted. The Loan Forgiveness will be based on the Sum of the Documented Payroll Costs, Covered Mortgage Interest Payments, Covered Rent Payments and Covered Utilities Documentation Provided. Due to the Likely High Subscription, it is anticipated that not more than 25% of the Forgiven Amount may be used for Non-Payroll Costs. The Loan Eligibility Amount will be calculated, using the Financial Documents, submitted during the Loan Eligibility Determination Process.

President Trump just signed off a $2 Trillion Relief Bill, which will come in form of Stimulus Checks to offer Assistance to Millions of American Household, affected by the Corona Virus Pandemic. We are aware that most of us have Questions and we want to enlighten you more about, what in this for us. The Following are the Basic Things to know about the Stimulus Checks: Your Eligibility for the Stimulus Check is based on your 2019 Tax Returns as well as your Adjusted Gross Income. If you are yet to file your 2019 Taxes, the IRS will use the 2018 Taxes to determine your Eligibility. The IRS will only use your 2018 Tax Returns, if you have not filed your 2019 Tax Returns. You must have a Valid Social Security Number to be eligible for this Check. People with ITIN Numbers and Tax ID Numbers will not be issued Checks. The Check Values are based on 3 Plans Income Qualification: SINGLE TAX FILERS - The Adjusted Gross Income Qualification is $75,000 or Less. This Category will get a $1,200 Stimulus Check. HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD FILERS - The Adjusted Gross Income Qualification is $112,500 or Less. This Category will get a $1,200 Stimulus Check.

Please Note, that this is as long, as the Child/Dependent was stated in the Tax Returns, at the time of Filing. If a Parent claims the Dependent/Child as a Dependent and this Child/Dependent files their own Taxes, the Parent will not get the Additional $500 Stimulus Check. The IRS will send the Payment to the Bank Account Information, that you have on File.

- BEWARE OF GIFT CARD SCAMS.
Holiday Season is here and it’s the Season of Giving. What Gift do you give, when you don’t know what to buy? Gift Cards, Of Course!!! The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is warning us of a Gift Card Scam going on at this period. Gift Card Scams are very popular and occur because Gift Cards are left out on the racks unattended. So, What Can you do to protect you from this Scam? Read on for Tips to guard you against Gift Card Scams: • Buy Gift Cards from Reputable Stores/Companies that offer Guarantees. • Grab a Gift Card from the Middle or Back of the Display and not the Front Row. Some Thieves remove Gift Cards from a Display, record the Card Number and put it back on the Display, waiting for a Customer to buy the Card, while checking regularly online for a Dollar Balance to appear, for them to use the Card. • Inspect the Gift Card Packaging before Purchasing. This helps to avoid tampered peeling. Some Manufacturers have been adding special packaging or scratch off Pin Numbers to prevent thieves from being able to look at the cards and stealing the Numbers. • Check the Activation Receipt for Matching Numbers and Amounts. • Only Check the Balance on your Gift Card through the Site listed on the Back of the Card itself, and if there is none, Go to the Website of the Company and look for a link to the Gift Card Page. Feel Free to Share and Spread the Message against Gift Card Scams. Enjoy your Holidays.

- TAX DAY IS APRIL 17 2018.
The deadline for filing your taxes is fast approaching — this year, The deadline is April 17, 2018. We all know, that Life can be busy!!! Maybe your taxes are particularly complicated this year, or maybe you just don’t have the time to sit down and sift through the paperwork. So, what happens if you don’t file your tax return on time? If you’re getting a refund on your taxes this year, you don’t need to panic — you have until April 17, 2021 to claim your refund (or until October 17, 2021 if you filed an extension by the April 17 deadline). It’s best to file as soon as possible, however, because if you don’t file within that 3-year period, you’ll lose the refund. If you owe taxes, things get complicated. First, you’ll be charged a failure-to-file penalty. That penalty is 5 percent of your unpaid tax bill for every month after the April deadline that you fail to pay. The amount can grow to a maximum of 25 percent of your total unpaid bill. In addition, you will be charged interest on whatever amount you did not pay. The interest rate is the federal short-term rate plus 3 percent with interest compounded daily. That can add up very quickly. How to File for an Extension on your Taxes. If you think you might be unable to file your tax return by the April 17 deadline, the best way to avoid fees and penalties is to file for an automatic six-month extension with the IRS using Form 4868. It’s free and pretty easy. But if you owe taxes, you’ll still need to pay them by the April 17 deadline or penalties, fees and interest will start to accrue. Form 4868 does not grant the taxpayer an extension of time to pay their tax. If you owe the IRS money and are having trouble coming up with the money, you have a few options. You can file for an extension of time to pay your tax bill using Form 1127: Application for Extension of Time for Payment of Tax Due to Undue Hardship, but be aware that the laws are very strict about granting such extensions. * The IRS must receive Form 1127 on or before the date that the tax is due. * The taxpayer must include a complete statement of all their assets and liabilities at the end of the previous month, as well as an itemized list of money they received and spent the previous three months prior to submitting the extension request. * The taxpayer must show that the payment of tax would result in “undue hardship.” That means more than inconvenience. *The taxpayer must show that paying by the due date would result in a serious loss of money and that they don’t have the funds, nor can they raise them through borrowing. When granted, these extensions usually last 6 months. For more information about extensions to pay tax, visit the IRS website at www.irs.gov. (You can read more about payment plans and other options for what to do if you can’t pay your tax bill here.) Ultimately, it is the best and safest idea to file your return by the April 17 deadline or file for an extension. That may be a hassle now, but it could save you a significant amount of financial harm in the future. If you need assistance, please call us as soon as possible.
