What Documentation Will Be Needed To Apply?
For purposes of calculating “Average Monthly Payroll,” most Applicants will use the average monthly payroll for 2019 or 2020, excluding costs over $100,000 on an annualized basis, as prorated for the period during which the payments are made or the obligation to make the payments is incurred, for each employee. 

  • For seasonal businesses, the Applicant may elect to instead use average total monthly payroll for any twelve-week period selected by the Applicant between February 15, 2019 and February 15, 2020, excluding costs over $100,000 on an annualized basis, as prorated for the period during which the payments are made or the obligation to make the payments is incurred, for each employee. 
  • For new businesses without 12 months of payroll costs but that were in operation on February 15, 2020, average monthly payroll may be calculated based on the number of months in which payroll costs were incurred, excluding costs over $100,000 on an annualized basis for each employee, as prorated for the period during which the payments are made or the obligation to make the payments is incurred, for each employee. 
  • For farmers and ranchers that operate as a sole proprietorship or as an independent contractor, or who are eligible self-employed individuals and report farm income or expenses on a Schedule F (or any equivalent successor IRS form), payroll costs are computed using eligible payroll costs for employees, if any, plus the lesser of $100,000 and the difference between gross income and any eligible payroll costs for employees, as reported on a Schedule F. 
  • For Applicants that file IRS Form 1040, Schedule C, payroll costs are computed using line 31 net profit amount, limited to $100,000, plus any eligible payroll costs for employees.
  • For Applicants that are partnerships, payroll costs are computed using net earnings from self-employment of individual general partners, as reported on IRS Form 1065 K 1, reduced by section 179 expense deduction claimed, unreimbursed partnership expenses claimed, and depletion claimed on oil and gas properties, multiplied by 0.9235, that is not more than $100,000, plus any eligible payroll costs for employees.
