I had good conversation with a Forensic Accountant yesterday on this bill. First she said it is very expensive and will be being paid for by our children and grandchildren. She also said there is waste in it.
Now for the last part, she said this is bill is amazing in the way it is written for the small business. I spent some time on line this morning reading it and so far agree with all she told me. She also said there is a fixed amount of money here and when it is gone it is gone. So if you are going to file, do so soon.
It is designed for business less than 500 employees, it is available for a self employed, independent contractor, agri business the list looks good to me. If you work for a company as a W2 but have a self employed or such business you still can be eligible. No idea on all the different options they offer but the two I have looked at are simple to submit. It is on line with no documents needed (got to believe they are pulling tax returns here) it is maybe four pages. Info they are is rather basic, if business you need it's info but name of operation, owners name and info, when business began, of course all tax numbers, only info you may not know off the top of your head is your bank info for if granted some of those monies are auto deposited.
Please don't waste time arguing how valid or sinful this is. Not saying there conversation should not take place but do another thread on it. Some here needs this for their business and want then to get it. I really suggest you look at the web site, it is design to help keep employees working and businesses open.
