Important Instructions From TDI:
Dec, 1, 2021
Reporting PPP Loans That Were Forgiven
on Experience Reports Due Dec. 13, 2021
Was your agency's PPP loan forgiven in 2020? Forgiven PPP loans should be included in experience reports for 2020 statistical data.
In response to questions from TLTA members, TLTA staff worked with TDI to secure the following guidance for agents regarding how to report PPP loans forgiven in 2020. If an agent had a PPP forgiven in 2020, that information should be reported among the 2020 statistical data due Dec. 13, 2021 as part of your 2020 experience report.
The following instructions apply only to agents that had a PPP forgiven in 2020. For agents who meet that condition, please do the following when preparing your 2020 experience report, which is due Dec. 13:
- Agent should report any PPP loans forgiven in 2020 as other income on Form E. In the text box on Form E, describe the income item as “Forgiven portion of PPP loan.”
- Agents should only report the portion of a forgiven PPP loan as other income once it has been formally forgiven. Do not report it as other income if it has not yet been forgiven.
- If you've already filed your 2020 experience report, and you had a PPP loan that was forgiven in 2020 that you did not include in the 2020 experience report already submitted, you should file an amended report.
Background Info on Agent Statistical Data Call Due Dec. 13, 2021
