Please Complete Your PPP Forgiveness Paperwork
To our PPP borrowers,
It is now time to submit your forgiveness paperwork!
The links below contain the most recent forgiveness applications and guidance provided by the SBA for your PPP loan with iTHINK Financial. Provided your business has maintained the same level of full time equivalent employees or you are a Schedule C filer, you may use the EZ Loan Forgiveness Application. If you have reduced staff or cut wages to staff as noted in the instructions, you will need to complete the standard application.
For EZ Loan Forgiveness:
For Standard Loan Forgiveness:
Please forward your completed application along with the supporting documentation described in the instructions and also listed below to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will review your submitted application within 5 business days and communicate any anomalies, corrections or required additional information. You can find your SBA loan# (on your loan closing documents) or Lender PPP loan# (membership ID) in the correspondence from iTHINK Financial. Please email us at email@example.com if you are unable to locate them.
Also please note, the SBA has 90 days to review your application for forgiveness once it is submitted to them so the process will take some time.
Lastly we are experiencing a very high volume of questions and requests. Please email all questions to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
