Important Update as of June 2, 2020: Phased Reopening Plan
Effective Wednesday, June 3rd, we will begin Phase II of a phased reopening plan. The Taylor Bank team has implemented many safeguards and procedures inside our branch lobbies to provide the safest environment possible for our customers and employees in preparation of this phased lobby reopening.
Please read the below strategy being implemented by our team, for the safety of all customers and team members, as we enter Phase II. We will continue to monitor conditions and may adjust plans as deemed necessary to protect the health and well-being of our team, customers, and community.
Phase I - Lobby Hours By Appointment Only
Plexiglass shields have been installed at desks and customer service stations for added protection.
Our staff will be wearing face masks, and we request our customers wear face coverings as well.
Hand sanitizing stations will be available.
We will begin offering appointments for face-to-face banking services within our branch lobbies. During this phase, please contact your local branch to schedule.
Phase II - Controlled / Monitored Lobby Reopening
#1 - #3 under Phase I will still be in place, and customers will no longer be asked to schedule an appointment.
During this phase, we are limiting the number of individuals in our lobbies. You will be met at the lobby entrance by a Greeter. If we are at capacity, our Greeters will ask that you wait and notify you when it is your turn to come in. In the event of inclement weather, the Greeter will take your cell phone number and ask you to return to your vehicle. The Greeter will then contact you by cell phone when it is your turn to come in.
Upon entry to the lobby, please be prepared to quickly and temporarily remove your face mask for security purposes.
We ask that the appropriate 6’ social distancing measures be followed. There will be floor markers to assist you.
All customer points of contact across all locations are sanitized prior to opening and frequently throughout the day.
Phase III - Expanded Lobby Reopening
An increased number of customers and employees will be permitted in our buildings as dictated by public health and safety guidance.
Customer entry may continue to be monitored by our Greeters as outlined in Phase II.
Social distancing and personal protection equipment (PPE) will follow public health and safety guidance.
Remember, you can also bank anytime, anywhere using our full suite of convenient digital services, and take advantage of our enhanced drive-thru capabilities, outlined below.
Paycheck Protection Program Loan Forgiveness Update - May 26,2020
The Department of Treasury and Small Business Administration recently published the PPP Loan Forgiveness Application and related instructions. Below is a link to the SBA website which contains a fillable pdf version of the application.
Further guidance with respect to PPP loan forgiveness was also recently added to the Treasury website and can be obtained using the links below.
We encourage customers that received Paycheck Protection Program loans to carefully review the PPP Loan Forgiveness Application and additional guidance provided in the Interim Final Rules to ensure that you can maximize the amount of loan forgiveness and meet the documentation requirements. While it is important to review the current forgiveness application and additional guidance provided in the Interim Final Rules, there could be changes to the application and/or instructions in the future.
Taylor Bank is currently reviewing the recently issued guidance to lenders for processing the PPP Loan Forgiveness Application. Rest assured that Taylor Bank is always here, for good, and will update this page with instructions on applying to Taylor Bank for PPP loan forgiveness as soon as possible.
The following information was also added to the SBA website when the forgiveness application was posted.
Loan Details: The loan will be fully forgiven if the funds are used for payroll costs, interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities (due to likely high subscription, at least 75% of the forgiven amount must have been used for payroll). Loan payments will also be deferred for six months. No collateral or personal guarantees are required. Neither the government nor lenders will charge small businesses any fees. Any unforgiven portion of a loan has a maturity of 2 years and an interest rate of 1%.
Forgiveness is based on the employer maintaining or quickly rehiring employees and maintaining salary levels. Forgiveness will be reduced if full-time headcount declines, or if salaries and wages decrease. The loan forgiveness form and instructions include several measures to reduce compliance burdens and simplify the process for borrowers, including:
• Options for borrowers to calculate payroll costs using an “alternative payroll covered period” that aligns with borrowers’ regular payroll cycles
• Flexibility to include eligible payroll and non-payroll expenses paid or incurred during the eight-week period after receiving their PPP loan
• Step-by-step instructions on how to perform the calculations required by the CARES Act to confirm eligibility for loan forgiveness
• Borrower-friendly implementation of statutory exemptions from loan forgiveness reduction based on rehiring by June 30
• Addition of a new exemption from the loan forgiveness reduction for borrowers who have made a good-faith, written offer to rehire workers that was declined
