The IRS announced that for those applying to correct the failure of not adopting a pre-approved EGTRRA plan by the April 30, 2010, a discounted fee of $375 applies to sponsors who file a VCP application on or before May 20, 2011 (postmarked within one year of the missed deadline). The applying plans also must:
- Have had no other plan qualification failures;
- Have 20 or fewer people in their plan.
The EGTRRA plan adoption requirement involved pre-approved 401(k), profit-sharing, money purchase or other defined contribution plan documents. The VCP fee for these plans will be $750 after April 30, 2011, the tax agency said.
