I laid people off during the Covered Period and paid them severance and their accrued PTO. Can I include that in the payroll costs for forgiveness?

Posted by Armanino LLP Webmaster

Yes. Paid time off and severance payouts to employees can be included in wages up to the limit of gross compensation per person in the Covered Period. However, keep in mind that eliminating those positions will also affect your FTE count in determining forgiveness reductions.
