Many Tax-Qualified Plans Require 415 Amendments by September


This is a brief reminder that tax-qualified plans, such as 401(k) plans, defined benefit pension plans and 403(b) plans must comply with final regulations issued in 2007 under section 415 of the Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”). The regulations apply to limitation years beginning on or after July 1, 2007, which for most plans will be the 2008 calendar year. In general, calendar-year plans must adopt these amendments by September 15, 2009,i.e., the employer’s tax return due date (including extensions) for the 2008 calendar year.
