Retirement Plan Sponsor Due Date Chart

December 19, 2012 at 6:41 pm Leave a comment

In their recent Employee Plan News located at http://www.irs.gov/Retirement-Plans/Internal-Controls-are-Essential-in-Retirement-Plans, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has an article about internal controls.  One of the items plan sponsors need to do is ensure they are filing necessary tax forms on a timely basis.  The IRS has a handy chart located at http://www.irs.gov/Retirement-Plans/Plan-Sponsor/401(k)-Resource-Guide—Plan-Sponsors—Filing-Requirements. The chart has a synopsis of what the forms are and when they are due.  It will be necessary to communicate with your TPA to ensure they are preparing any necessary forms in a timely manner so fees and interest are not accrued for late filings.

I discuss determining TPA qualifications in my book, A Short Guide to Finding a High Value, Low Fee Third Party Administrator (TPA) for Your Retirement Plan, available at amazon.com. My goal is to help plan sponsors make the best decision they can when selecting a  TPA.
