Our commentary: Another Corporate Facility Launched, @federalreserve Chair’s Prepared Comments are Stale, & PPP Expires #muniland…
A scattered reopening rollback continued in the U.S., and an increase in confirmed #COVID19 cases is still expected. #muniland
The U.S. @federalreserve launched its Primary Market Corporate Credit Facility yesterday—still nothing similar for the #municipalbond market. Something comparable should be prepared. #muniland #unroll @threadreaderapp

ہوابازی کے وزیر،سرور خان ہیں۔1985 اور 1988 اور 1990 کے انتخابات میں یہ ایم پی اےمنتخب ہوئے۔97میں ppp کے ٹکٹ پر الیکشن لڑے،ہارگئے۔ 2004میں یہ شوکت عزیز کی کابینہ میں محنت اور افرادی قوت کے وزیر تھے۔ اب سرور خان لوگوں کو راز یہ بتاتے پائے جاتے ہیں کہ ملک پہلے والوں نے تباہ کیا تھا۔

President Trump is holding a roundtable with Gov. Kevin Stitt of Indiana and Gov. Pete Ricketts of Nebraska to discuss efforts to support America's small businesses with @SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza on reopening America.

The Paycheck Protection Program (#PPP) has been a tremendous success for small businesses and the American workforce.

Had a client just hit the end of his 8-week #PPP initial covered period. Would get full forgiveness based on usage of the funds. Wants to just use the 8-week period. I've advised him against it... (1/2)

Reason being? Freaking QBI.

$700k #PPP
$100k non-PR costs
$600k PR costs ($575k gross PR)

If I take the 24-week period, I get the following:

$700k PPP
$300k non-PR costs
$400k PR costs ($325k gross PR)

(2/3 -- lied about just 2 posts)

Deductibility is the problem here (for now). If we lose the deduction for that $575k in wages (we shouldn't), that's $115k in QBID that goes away. If we use the 24-wk period, that $325k in wages only costs $65k QBID.

Saving $50k QBID/$18k income taxes w/ this. (3/3)

Alrighty then... Kids are asleep, and dinner is done. So time to breakdown Congress's latest 'gift' to small business owners, and the tax and financial planning community.

It's called the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act (Full Text:…)...

Now unless you've been sleeping under a rock for the past 68 days (yes, that's the exact number of days it's been since the CARES Act was passed... though it feels more like 84 years to many of us), you've heard about the #PPP program and probably know the basics. But...

...if in fact you have been hiding under that rock, you can get the basics here:…
and, of course, here:…

But a word of warning, thanks to the new PPP Flex Act, a lot of that info is now outdated!

The #HeroesAct, the #coronavirus bill we are voting on today, contains several important priorities I fought for. While the bill could go further, I’m pleased with much of what we secured. 1/12
The bill boosts funds for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (#SNAP) by 15%. In my district, I’ve seen lines at local food banks. Families need this assistance. 2/12
It provides a second round of more substantial economic stimulus payments consisting of $1,200 per family member, and up to $6,000 per household to ease the financial burden that many are experiencing due to #COVID19. 3/12

Some MAJOR #PPP news to pass along. Earlier today @USTreasury updated the FAQs on its site (AGAIN!), by creating new Q&A #46.

In short, Q&A #46 creates a safe harbor for PPP loans of $2 million or less when it comes to the good-faith certification...…

Just to be clear, we're talking about the certification that a borrower must make that says:

"current economic uncertainty makes this loan request necessary to support the ongoing operations"

In short, Q&A #46 the safe harbor says that if you received a loan of...

...$2 million or less (including loans made to affiliated companies), the certification will be deemed valid. Period. End of story.

The logic behind this, per Q&A #46, is to "promote economic certainty" for borrowers and to...

New Guidance for #PPP: To get maximum forgiveness you'll need to sacrifice a goat during a blood moon, at the stroke of midnight, while wearing a crown of thorns and Luke Skywalker's robes, and only after reciting pi in it's entirety.

Subject to additional guidance.
Additional Guidance: after additional consideration, you do not need to sacrifice the goat. Businesses who have already sacrificed the goat will be severely punished. Instead, businesses much sacrifice a dodo bird. /2
Additional Guidance: Upon discovering that dodo birds no longer exist there is no animal sacrifice required. Businesses that have already sacrificed a goat are still to be severely penalized. Penalty TBD /3

THREAD: When you look at the market reaction, there are a couple very concerning things.

It can fuel this OBVIOUS falsehood that the market = the economy.

But, it also takes the pressure off President Trump to do more to support the financial hemorrhaging happening.
You can already see it with Republicans and the White House (Kudlow said it today) wanting to pump the brakes on more financial support.
Consider: the ✈️ industry (which has access to raise $ in the cap markets) got a bespoke bailout deal & a defecto airline bailout czar in Mnuchin
- these companies got a tax cut in ‘17 & poured their free $ flow into buybacks over last few yrs
- charged more for bags & leg room

Turns out that Brentwood School, which Steven Mnuchin & Michael Milken's kids attend has rec'd PPP $.
Who could have told them to apply
Who could possibly have made sure this happened..
Late yesterday, after this story broke, Mnuchin tweeted:
“It has come to our attention that some private schools with significant endowments have taken #PPP loans. They should return them. @SBAgov #CARESAct #PPPLoans
Can't make this stuff up!
And then Trump chimed in...
He's worried that his base will, for once rightly, take offense at the rich people associated w his admin getting preferential treatment while they struggle.

As my law office waits to see if we'll clear this round of #PPP funding to receive the extremely modest loan we'll need to keep staff on payroll/benefits as our revenue continues to stall, I just can't stop thinking about this wanton pigfucker.
We couldn't even *apply* for relief last round bc @SantanderBankUS couldn't pull together a simple application process in 2 weeks before big GOP donors like Bennett started *paying himself & his dad dividends* from your tax $$ which could have saved 100 companies like ours
The three law partners in my office all agreed to stop receiving paychecks 2 months ago so that we could do our best to use our reserve funds & limited revenue to keep staff who does so much for us employed & insured. There was no discussion about this whatsoever. It was assumed.

Several observations on the eve of Day 3 Round 2 of #PPP. The big theme here is that new guidelines from the SBA screwed over smaller regional and community banks, and net-net it’s going to hurt SMBs by extension. 1/n
2/ First and foremost, I deeply admire everyone who is burning the midnight oil to help save SMBs. Across the board, people at the @SBAgov and banks haven't slept in weeks on end. It's an exhausting and herculean effort, and frankly there's really no end in sight right now.
3/ Let's start with this email that was sent Sunday evening before PPP applications reopened. The first thing to note is that the SBA and Treasury are implementing new measures to pace the number of loans processed in the E-Tran system. What does this mean?

I JUST want to be clear here @stevenmnuchin1 railed at the LA Laker’s #PPP subsequently they returned it

WHY is it the disproportionate #PPP approved by @SBAgov @SBAJovita went to Cos like:

For those who are paying attention to the stimulus package just passed and are wondering, “what the heck is a Community Development Financial Institution (#CDFI)?” Short answer: they are the greatest thing that you’ve never heard of.

A thread.
CDFIs were created in the 1970s as a response to discriminatory financing practices from banks (redlining, racism, etc.) As CDFI leader Mark Pinsky puts it, they were “an experimental approach to community building and anti-poverty efforts”…
They were set up to create a grass roots financial system to serve the people, businesses and communities that the banks deemed “un-bankable” (i.e., non-white, poor communities). Today, they are 1,142 community-based loan funds, credit unions, & banks across the country.

#PPP is not working for Mainers who need help the most right now. In this time of crisis, @SenatorCollins is delivering -- just not for the people she serves.

Recent headlines from across the US tell the story:


#mepolitics #BailOutPeopleNotCorporations
“The Paycheck Protection Program was supposed to infuse small businesses, which typically have less access to quick cash and credit… But at least 75 companies that received the aid were publicly traded… and some had market values well over $100M.”…
“A federal loan program intended to rescue small businesses and workers from economic devastation during the coronavirus pandemic has shortfalls that some Maine companies say will prevent the program from saving jobs as intended.”…
