More about the CARES Act
Many employers felt the economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic in some shape or form. Coming in at $2.2 trillion, the CARES Act offered new loans and grants, including payroll tax credits to keep employees on the payroll, plus paycheck protection loans to help cover the average monthly payroll costs for many small businesses. It also delays payment of social security taxes to make it a little easier for small businesses to stay solvent.
