The deadline to adopt an IRS-sanctioned plan document is rapidly approaching. As we detailed in a previous newsletter (Spring 2017), the IRS set March 31, 2020 as the date by which plan sponsors must restate their plans to an IRS-approved document to replace the “good-faith” documents that were adopted in 2009. The restatement on to a pre-approved document will allow sponsors to correct any document issues that are inconsistent with the operation of the plan retroactively to 2010. This is a great opportunity for non-profit sponsors to bring their plans into compliance.
