PPP (Paycheck Protection Program) Forgiveness Deadlines
When is the last day that borrowers may apply for loan forgiveness?

IFR #20, Revisions to Loan Forgiveness IFR and SBA Loan Review Procedures IFR (85 FR 38304 published June 26, 2020) states that “a borrower may submit a loan forgiveness application any time on or before the maturity date of the loan—including before the end of the covered period—if the borrower has used all of the loan proceeds for which the borrower is requesting forgiveness.” IFR #17, Revisions to First Interim Final Rule (85 FR 36308 published June 16, 2020), states, “For loans made before June 5, 2020, the maturity is two years; however, borrowers and lenders may mutually agree to extend the maturity of such loans to five years. For loans made on or after June 5, the maturity is five years.”

What this means is that the borrower has up until the end of the loan to apply for forgiveness, which can either be two or five years depending on the type of PPP loan. However, the borrower only has ten months of deferral after which the borrower must start paying back the lender. The borrower would only apply for forgiveness on the remaining amount that they haven't paid back to the lender. Also, the borrower can still apply for forgiveness before the end of the Covered Period if the borrower wants to. The lender would still have 60 days after receiving the forgiveness application to make a forgiveness decision and submit that to SBA.
