SBA Releases New Simplified Forgiveness Form for PPP Loans

When Congress passed the budget reconciliation act that contained the second Covid-related stimulus, one piece of the legislation was a simplified form for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan forgiveness. Late yesterday, the Small Business Administration released the newest version of Form 3508S, the form that borrowers will need to complete.

This form can only be used if the amount of the PPP loan was $150,000 or less. The form is far easier to complete than the Form 3508EZ and should make applying for forgiveness far easier. It will likely be a few days before lenders are ready to accept the new Form 3508S. (One SBA website states that the Form 3508S can only be used for loans of $50,000 or less; that is wrong. I expect that website to also be corrected in the next few days.)
