Deduction of post termination funding

Recommended Posts

An employer is required to fund additional money due to market fluctuations to pay out the final benefits and close a plan. The date of the funding is past the  deduction deadline (9/15/20)  for the year of plan termination (2019).  Can they deduct the contribution for the year it is made even though the plan was not active for that year?  I am being told that it's not deductible for 2020 since they do not have a plan for 2020.  

Here are some example dates:

Plan termination date 12/30/19

Tax deadline 9/15/20.

Contribution date  11/1/20.
