Notice 2020-32: Deductibility of expenses when loan is forgiven under Paycheck Protection Program (COVID-19)

The IRS released an advance version of Notice 2020-32 providing guidance regarding the deductibility for federal income tax purposes of certain otherwise deductible expenses incurred in a taxpayer’s trade or business when the taxpayer receives a loan (covered loan) pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

Notice 2020-32 clarifies that no deduction is allowed for an expense that is otherwise deductible if the payment of the expense results in forgiveness of a covered loan pursuant to provisions of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) (Pub. L. No. 116-136) and the income associated with the forgiveness is excluded from gross income under the CARES Act.
