Today, I'd like to discuss a recent comment letter that the Aspen Government Affairs Committee submitted to the Internal Revenue Service regarding the new IRS Form 5558. This form is used to extend the filing deadline of Form 5500, as well as Form 5330, which is used to pay an excise tax on a prohibited transaction. Back in 2005, the IRS amended the rules so that a signature is not required when filing Form 5558 to extend the due date of Form 5500. However, since then, Form 5500 has moved to mandatory electronic filing procedures. As a result, Form SSA, which used to be a schedule to the Form 5500, has been removed and made a separate IRS form, Form 8955-SSA. The reason for this change is that Form SSA is used to report participants who separated with a deferred vested benefit, including their social security numbers. Since the 5500 form is now available electronically on the internet, the government did not want those social security numbers to be exposed. Therefore, it was moved to an IRS form. The concern of the comment letter is that the recently revised extension form, Form 5558, now requires a signature for the purpose of extending the filing deadline of the new Form 8955-SSA. Previously, when it was part of the Form 5500, no signature was required. The Aspen Government Affairs Committee strongly believes that the same policies that applied to repealing the signature requirement for the Form 5500 extension in 2005 should be applied to the new Form 8955-SSA. It's important to note that the new Form 8955-SSA does have a transitional rule and an extended deadline for filing for the 2009 and some of the 2010 plan years. I recommend looking at our ASPA ASAP, which was released in the summer as number 11-25, for more...
