Tax Resolution Attorney John P. Willis Talks About A Shift In The Business Tax Law That Is Good News For Businesses That Received PPP Loans.

Tax resolution attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR shares some good IRS news for business owners who applied for and received PPP loans that will be helpful this tax season.

Fairhope, AL, January 19, 2021: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of, recently published a blog on his website entitled “No Deduction Denied. Mr. Willis speaks to a policy change of heart that means good news for business.

John P WillisWillis writes, “With the 2020 tax season bearing down upon us, the Internal Revenue Service has issued some good news for small business owners who received PPP Loans under the 2020 Cares Act.” He continues, “In a policy shift that came after Congress passed new legislation last month, the IRS will now allow businesses that got their Paycheck Protection Program loans forgiven to write off expenses paid for with that money.” He adds, “This decision overrides previous rules stating that recipients of PPP loans that had been forgiven couldn’t claim deductions for the wages, rent, utilities and other expenses covered by the loans.”

According to Willis, “In a recent statement, the IRS said, “no deduction is denied, no tax attribute is reduced, and no basis increase is denied by reason of the exclusion from gross income of the forgiveness of an eligible recipient’s covered loan.””

Willis goes on to say, “This IRS change of heart means that some businesses could end up paying a negative tax rate on their PPP money — meaning the tax benefits outweigh the amount of their loan. For business owners paying the top tax rate, it generally means they could save as much as $37 on their taxes for every $100 of tax-free PPP money they received.”
