We just wrote an update on the PPP Loan and Deductible Expenditures Relief. Rolando and I wanted to share additional information now that on December 27, 2020, President Trump signed a $2.3 trillion Coronavirus relief and government funding bill, Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021, into law extending billions of dollars in relief aid to individuals and businesses across the country.
