Expenses Paid for with PPP Loan Funds are Now Deductible

After many months of debate and consternation, Congress has finally overridden the guidance issued by the IRS and Secretary Mnuchin regarding deducibility of expenses paid for with PPP loan funds.


The Relief Act states “no deduction shall be denied, no tax attribute shall be reduced, and no basis increase shall be denied, by reason of the exclusion from gross income provided by” Section 7A of the Small Business Act (formerly Section 1106 of the CARES Act). In other words, the PPP expenses that were paid with the proceeds of a forgiven loan will be tax deductible for federal income tax purposes.
