emmetttrudy Posted December 23, 2013 Report Share Posted December 23, 2013 Plan's original effective date is 1/1/2006. Plan is going to terminate 12/31/2013, and possibly be submitted sometime in 2014. Is it exempt from the IRS user fee? The instructions on the 5310 aren't exactly clear. The exemption from the user fee applies to all eligible employers (defined below) who request a determination letter within the first 5 plan years or, if later, the end of any remedial amendment period with respect to the plan that begins within the first 5 plan years. A determination letter application that is filed by an eligible employer meets the requirements for exemption if: (1) the application is filed no later than the last day of the submission period for the plan's current remedial amendment cycle under Rev. Proc. 2007-44, and (2) the plan was first in effect no earlier than January 1 of the tenth calendar year immediately before the year in which the submission period for the plan's current remedial amendment cycle begins. (If the plan was first in effect before this date, but the application is still filed within a remedial amendment period that began within the first 5 plan years and you are an eligible employer, complete only the Certification and attach an explanation of how your application qualifies for exemption under section 7528(b)(2)(B).) Example. An employer maintains an individually designed plan first effective on July 1, 2001. Assume that the plan's 5 year remedial amendment cycle is Cycle A. Therefore, the submission period for the plan's current cycle ends on January 31, 2012. Assume that the employer files a determination letter application for the plan on January 31, 2012. If the employer is an eligible employer, the application is exempt from the user fee requirement because the application is filed by the last day of the submission period for the plan's current remedial amendment cycle and the date the plan was first in effect (July 1, 2001) is not before January 1, 2001 (i.e., January 1 of the tenth calendar year immediately before 2011, the year in which the submission period for the plan's current remedial amendment cycle begins).
