COVID 19 help available for the small businesses

In this crucial timing when people are suffering and business are closing down, US Government is offering some support and funds to business owners and independent contractors. It is unfortunate that there are many muslim people in our community members who are unaware of there programs and/or don’t know how to apply for it.
Many people don’t know what figures to use when applying for it and if they don’t use the correct figure it is obvious they will not get the right amount of fund. This fund May be forgivable on certain conditions.

For payroll program they need to use not only payroll but it is called employee compensation.  And compensation is not only pay check it include many other items such as tips cash tips, medical programs, retirement payment Employer pays to employee, 1099 to independent contractors even net income, self employment as well, And more, I will be more than happy to guide you. So don’t think you can’t apply if you are self employed.

There are two main programs that I am aware of and I think can help our community business owners. Below is link for payroll protection plan.
