Jim Dew, an experienced Wealth Manager and owner of Dew Wealth Management, has an IMPORTANT MESSAGE about how your Paycheck Protection Program funds will affect your taxes:

“The IRS came out with some guidance and they said if you get a PPP loan AND you get forgiveness for qualified expenses, then those expenses you can NOT also take a tax deduction for.

Thanks to Jim, you’re WAY ahead of the game and can prepare in advance. Imagine getting this news during tax season when you’re in the middle of filing! 

Now is the time to look at other ways where you can save on taxes or recoup/balance that money out, and I have a few ideas in this episode. 

Plus, I’ll run through the exact conversation I’m going to have with my financial team now (not later), and I recommend you have this conversation now as well—versus having it during tax season when it’s way too late to formulate a plan of action.
