**A few updates or edits on the content:

1) Alternative Payroll Covered Period -- In order to elect this, you need to have bi-weekly payroll or more frequent (like weekly). If you have monthly or semi-monthly, you are unable to select this.
2) Owner's Compensation can be included in the loan forgiveness calculation, but it can only be the maximum of the 8-week equivalent of that owner's 2019 payroll.
3) Owner Employees cannot be included in the headcount calculations for FTE. Because of this, they should not be included in the calculation regarding the covered period & reference period for comparison. This will impact the overall FTE quotient calculation. Specifically, what does it mean to be an owner employee has not been fully defined.
