But Who’s Counting? Episode 15: Did Your Business Receive COVID-19 Relief Funding? Beware Upcoming Audits

It’s been almost three years since the COVID-19 pandemic first began and the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act programs are nearing the end of their lifecycles, so what’s next? But Who’s Counting? host David E. Hartley chatted with returning guest Anders Director + Strategic Growth Paul C. Rhea about which programs are still available to qualifying businesses along with the following points of interest: 

  • What’s next for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) funds, Employee Retention Tax Credits (ERTC) and Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) 
  • Which CARES Act programs have ended and what is still available 
  • How long the SBA will be investigating suspicions of criminal or fraudulent activity for PPP loans 
  • IRS audits are coming for ERTC 
  • Only about 22% of ERTC-eligible businesses have actually applied for the tax credits
