New tool helps PPP borrowers complete forgiveness application
A free tool is available to help borrowers and their CPA advisers complete the forgiveness application for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans.

Available at, the tool automates the forgiveness process for small business owners who received funds from the PPP. The tool incorporates the PPP forgiveness calculator developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and is available to any business approved for a PPP loan, regardless of the lender it worked with to receive funding.

Borrowers or their CPA advisers can use the tool to fill out the forgiveness application. The tool will produce all government-required forms automatically. The PPP applicants will be able to electronically sign the SBA Form 3508, the PPP Loan Forgiveness Calculation Form or Form 3508EZ, and the required source documents will be saved into a downloadable file that can be provided to PPP lenders.

80th Avenue station vendor RFQs due Sept. 1
Requests for qualifications are due Tuesday, Sept. 1 for commercial business owners who are interested in operating the 800-square foot cafe inside the 80th Avenue Metra train station. The Village also will be scheduling showings of the facility to potential vendors.
