Hi,

I have a S corporation with approximately $270,000 of gross receipts.

I have benefited from a PPP loan of $10,000. It was forgiven. As it is tax-exempt income, it doesn't appear on the form 1120S calculation and not on the profit/loss calculation.
As I understand it, the PPP loan amount should increase my shareholder's basis and it should appear on the schedule M2 in the OAA.

The question is: On the schedule L, do I add it to the retained earnings, line 24, or to the adjustments to shareholders' equity, line 25?

It should be included as Retained Earnings Line 24, not separate as an adjustment on Line 25. It is indeed Tax-Exempt Income, should be reflected on Line 5a of Sch M-1. You are correct that it increases your basis and it should also appear under the OAA cloumn in Sch M-2.
