The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently published a revised form and instructions for Form 5300, Application for Determination for Employee Benefit Plan. Form 5300 requests the IRS to determine whether the documentation of an individually designed retirement plan meets tax qualification standards under Section 401(a) of the Internal Revenue Code. Because the new Form 5300 has numerous changes, plan sponsors and their advisors should carefully review the new instructions before completing and submitting a Form 5300 and should allow extra time to prepare Cycle A determination letter filings that are due on or before January 31, 2012.
