Are you a Farmer or a Rancher? Have you received your PPP funds yet? If you haven’t, then listen up!
The Paychex Protection Program (PPP) allows Farmers & Ranchers to obtain Paycheck Protection funds using their 2019 or 2020 Gross Receipts, not net income.
It says right on the application “For farmers and ranchers that operate as a sole proprietorship or as an independent contractor, or who are eligible self-employed individuals and report farm income or expenses on a Schedule F (or any equivalent successor IRS form), payroll costs are computed using eligible payroll costs for employees, if any, plus the lesser of $100,000 and the difference between gross income and any eligible payroll costs for employees, as reported on a Schedule F. “.
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!
