    Do you have to claim small business grants on your taxes?

      Hi Jackson,

      In most instances, grant funds are counted as taxable income on your federal tax return. This means that you will be required to pay taxes on these funds. The financial impact of a grant come tax time depends on multiple factors, including your business structure. We cover all that in the post here in the Are Grants Taxable? section.

        The Consolidated Appropriations Act provides that taxable income does not include EIDL grants. In other words, EIDL advance mentioned in this article is not taxable. There were different interpretations, even by IRS, however, at the end of the day, it was clarified that EIDL grant (advance) is not taxable; expenses paid using this grant are deductible.
