Financial Tips for Suriving the Coronavirus Pandemic
For the last few weeks, the United States and world economies have been vastly affected due to the spread of the coronavirus. We are seeing daily curtailments that we have never seen in our lifetimes. From a financial standpoint here are some tips to take into consideration to survive this crisis:
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has extended the deadline to file income tax returns by ninety (90) days from April 15, to July 15, 2020. While some may find it necessary to take advantage of this additional time to file, IRS suggests that if you are due a refund, file your return as soon as possible.
Due to the coronavirus, the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) has made available economic injury disaster loans for non-profits and small businesses with fewer than five hundred (500) employees. The loan amount can be up to two million dollars ($2,000,000) to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that cannot be paid due to the loss of revenue caused by a declared disaster. The interest rates for the loans are 3.75% for small businesses and 2.75% for non-profits. Visit for more information regarding the loan program.
Creditors (mortgage, automobile finance, utility and telephone companies, and cell phone providers) have been directed by the government to accommodate customers during this time. In many instances, you can go to the creditor's website and request a deferment. If deferments are not available on the website, contact the company and ask for a deferment. Within the past week, individuals have reported receiving deferments from their creditors without being questioned. Deferments up to one year have been received, while shorter deferments ranging from month to month to six months have also been reported. The common element of the deferments is that interest will continue to accrue on the loan and the maturity date will be extended. In some cases, creditors have tried to get customers to agree to a balloon payment at the maturity date of the loan. Resist that option unless you are comfortable with it.
The United States government has realized that there is uncertainty as to how long the coronavirus pandemic will last. The government further realizes that if companies do not work with their customers, the economy will collapse, and the government wants to avoid that at all costs. Therefore, be proactive rather than reactive with your finances. In other words, ask creditors for help (deferments) on your obligations rather than allowing them to fall behind.
