Small business owners are a vital part of the economy and have been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The federal government, through the IRS, has provided various programs and tax credits to help support small business owners during these challenging times. One such program is the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which provides forgivable loans to small businesses to help cover payroll and other expenses. The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is another tax credit offered by the IRS that helps employers keep their employees on payroll during the pandemic.
It is important for small business owners to take advantage of these programs and tax credits to get the money they deserve from the federal government. By carefully following the guidelines and requirements set forth by the IRS, small business owners can receive much-needed financial support to keep their businesses afloat. Additionally, they should seek the guidance of a tax professional or the IRS if they have any questions or need additional information. The federal government recognizes the importance of small businesses and is committed to providing the support they need to survive and thrive. Our guest speaker this week is former District Attorney Dominic DeSandro, who will give more details about how to receive your share of FREE government money.
The format of this course will consist of an approximately 20 minute lecture followed by a Q&A session lasting approximately 5 minutes. Although we model the new EFC format after collegiate courses, we respectfully ask all in attendance to refrain from asking questions during the lecture portion so as to give the speaker(s) ample time to get through the material.
Refreshments are generously provided each week by Arlene Arreola. Donations to help cover the costs are accepted. Additional refreshments will be available for purchase downstairs at the Skyline Café after class. We ask that you exercise good stewardship and help us keep the facility in good order by cleaning up after yourself.
Once the class is officially dismissed, we encourage ongoing information exchange and networking. If you have any questions that did not get answered in class, please email them to us and we’ll either incorporate the responses into a future session or email you back directly.
