OneAmerica: ‘Clock is Ticking’ for Tax Exempt Organizations to Meet IRS Deadline

gbafNews28

Retirement service provider OneAmerica is offering a friendly reminder to plan sponsors in the nonprofit sector who have yet to comply with a looming Internal Revenue Service (IRS) administrative deadline.

Tax exempt organizations (other than designated church plans) have until March 31, 2020, to adopt a pre-approved prototype document to ensure consistency and compliance. OneAmerica has found that transferring and reviewing the data to adopt the IRS plan, a process known as restatement, typically averages at least 15 or more hours of labor for each plan sponsor.

Kevin Kidwell, vice president of national tax exempt sales at OneAmerica, has spent much of 2019 sounding the warning bell to nonprofit leaders about the importance of restatement. As a participant in various panels, including the PLANSPONSOR 2019 national conference panel1, Kidwell said he believes the IRS restatement is a blessing, not a burden.

During this remedial amendment period, or restatement period, understanding how your plan is operating versus how the plan was written and designed is a required conversation, Kidwell said. Actual practice has strayed from the original draft, and most plans have some sort of defect they need to clean up. Theyve got three months left to do this, and the clock is ticking.

This issue is an important one to customers of OneAmerica, which has focused on serving the tax exempt market since the mid-1960s. Of 26 tax exempt providers profiled in the 2018 PLANSPONSOR 403(b) Buyers Guide in terms of plans served by industry, OneAmerica ranked 1st in social and community service organizations, 4th in charitable organizations, 6th in religious organizations, and 6th in hospital/healthcare2.

Tax exempt business is in our DNA. Many of our longest-tenured clients are nonprofit organizations, said Sandy McCarthy, president of retirement services at OneAmerica. Our seasoned team is experienced in serving tax-code neutral plans and delivering customized solutions that allow these mission-oriented, client-focused organizations to help their participants on their paths to retirement.
