Are you a self-employed individual and a Schedule C filer? Have you received your PPP funds yet?

If you have not received your PPP funds, or if you need to increase your original amount, then listen up!

The Paychex Protection Program (PPP) is now allowing those who are self-employed & Schedule C filers to obtain Paycheck Protection funds using their 2019 or 2020 Gross Income, not Net Income.

The new Borrower Application SBA Form 2483-C is titled “Paycheck Protection Program Borrower Application Form for Schedule C Filers Using Gross Income March 3,2021” – see link below.

The calculation is easy, just take your gross income from 2019 or 2020 IRS Form 1040, Schedule C Line 7 (capped at $100,000), divide that by 12 (capped at $8,333.33), then multiply by 2.5 (plus EIDL). That will equal the Loan Amount (capped at $20,833.33).

If you have not already requested PPP funds, we suggest that you contact your banker and tax professional to discuss your eligibility as soon as possible!
