John, your situation is very familiar to situations we deal with on a daily basis here at Bridge Management. You can flip a coin and figure out if the treasury will take all of it. If they know about it, the odds are certainly likely they will get it. You should seriously consider speaking to a BK attorney to include the SBA debt so you can protect your disability and future wage garnishment.
The SBA requires a personal guarantee from every owner with at least a 20% ownership stake and from others who hold top management positions. A personal guarantee puts you and your personal assets on the hook for payments if your business can’t make them.
John, Our home was significantly damaged in October 2012 by Hurricane Sandy. Since that time we have still been struggling to rebuild & pick up the pieces. We had taken an SBA Loan as a second mortgage to help secure funds to assist with the rebuild & repairs. Due to a number of issues resulting from the storm, we have fell behind with our mortgage payments. We would like to maintain the home but are considering filing a chapter 13. Attorneys (New Jersey) have not advised me if the SBA 2nd mortgage can be stripped. What is your experience with this type of circumstance? Is the SBA 2nd mortgage treated the same as a typical 2nd mortgage from any bank? Do you know of any assistance / programs available to those who sustained damages now dealing with potentional issues of foreclosure? Thank you for your time.

Second question first. If the OIC was properly prepared, you have been released from your personal guarantee. As to the 1099, it should be sent to the entity that took out the loan, not you. If you had an LLC or corporation, they got the money. You were a guarantor not the borrower.

Because you have strong credit but your revenue doesn’t quite meet the requirements of most online lenders, consider Fundbox or a business credit card. Business credit cards are a solid option for ongoing working capital and provide quick access to cash, spending rewards and sign-up bonuses. If your business has unpaid customer invoices, you can take a cash advance against those invoices through Fundbox, although you’ll likely pay a higher APR than you would with a business credit card.

FICO® LiquidCredit® Small Business Scoring Service℠, (or FICO® SBSS℠ score) is one of the three main business credit scores. It’s the one credit score all business owners should know, but many have never heard of it because, until now, it’s been hard to get your hands on it. Banks aren’t required to disclose that they use the FICO® SBSS℠ score and very little information exists about it online. More lenders are using it because it helps them make faster, more accurate lending decisions. This means they can make decisions in hours, not days.

Hurricane Katrina destroyed my home and some rental properties. I took out SBA disaster assistance loans to help. One loan was a refi on my home that was destroyed along with fixing it $400,000 and the other loan was for 100,000 to fix the rentals. I still had mortgages on all properties. I was able to make the payments but started having trouble in 2009 with the recession. I have been in and out of Liquidation. I am trying to get another workout with them but it seems they are ready to drop to Treasury. I am scared of Foreclosure. I have 4 properties tied to the SBA loans, 3 properties SBA is in second position behind mortgage companies, Carrington and Wells Fargo but my home I have a second of 80k from SLS that was not part of the refi from SBA… Can they foreclose, they spoke to me about charge off but I figured since they were in first position on the home I built twice they would come after it… I have not been able to sleep, I am so worried, I owed 280k when the storm hit and now I owe close to 500k and the house is worth around 330,000….
If you don’t have established business credit yet, you can leverage your personal credit to qualify for financing – but you’ll probably have to personally guarantee the loan or put down collateral.

Taking the time to build excellent business credit – and monitor it regularly – can save you thousands of dollars on the cost of your loan. Financially speaking, a good business credit score it can be a total game changer for your business

The growth of alternative lending gives established companies a wide range of business loan options. But entrepreneurs might find it hard to get a small-business startup loan. After all, who wants to lend thousands of dollars to a small business that doesn’t even have revenue yet?
Working Capital loans offer a simple small business financing solution for entrepreneurs needing $50,000 – $150,000 for business operations. These loans provide the same government guarantee and low interest rates as traditional SBA loans, but they can close in as little as days — about half the time it takes to close a traditional SBA loan.
Small-business grants from private foundations and government agencies are another way to raise startup funds for your small business. They’re not always easy to get, but free capital might be worth the hard work for some new businesses.

If you’re unemployed and thinking about starting your own business, those funds you’ve accumulated in your 401(k) over the years can look pretty tempting. And thanks to provisions in the tax code, you actually can tap into them without penalty if you follow the right steps. The steps are simple enough, but legally complex, so you’ll need someone with experience setting up a C corporation and the appropriate retirement plan to roll your retirement assets into. Remember that you’re investing your retirement funds, which means if things don’t pan out, not only do you lose your business, but your nest egg, too.
The SBA Microloan program provides loans to nonprofit intermediary lenders who in turn lend amounts under $50,000 to for-profit small businesses and nonprofit child care centers.
