  1. None of these people meet the statutory eligibility of 410(a). So test them separately.
  2. Do your actual testing with a definition that does pass 414(s) then, even if the allocations were done with the comp definition you were given. If you can pass with gross 415 pay, for instance since that passes 414(s), then you should be in the clear.
  3. The funds were distributed, which they should have been, regardless if they were an actual benefit payment, or as an ADP refund. The plan just has to do two 1099-R forms bifurcating how much counts as what, and then since the IRA has money it shouldn't in there, the IRA owner will need to get it out or face the penalty for an ineligible rollover contribution.
  4. So the coverage ratio is 70% or more, and the contributions are a uniform 3% (a safe harbor uniform percentage of compensation) for those who do get them? That'd be fine.
  5. Way more than the minimum contribution, or way more than the maximum deductible?
  6. They can start another PS plan for 2024 with new comparability, and merge them next year.
  7. What do the plan's document and procedures for in-service distributions say?
  8. Plan B shouldn't be issuing a 1099 for this. They're just fixing an inappropriate rollover CONtribution.
  9. whoa, wait.....If she gets paid in 2024, she gets a 1099-R for 2024. Why would or should this be retroactive in any circumstance?
  10. I'd make sure nobody's match amount exceeded the amount a annual formula would have come up with, too. If it's 50 on 4 every week, how did this one guy end up with 2.05% for the whole year - that kind of thing...
  11. Grrrr, either go with a pay period calculation or don't, but stop trying to be cute? 😜
  12. And if the HCEs get their 3% as profit sharing rather than as the safe harbor nonelective, you get to impute disparity on it when general testing with other benefits. You'll appreciate that difference exactly once in your career but it'll be worth it!
  13. those IRS statements are what I'd call "necessary but NOT sufficient"
  14. That doesn't sound right, as an EPCRS correction like this is all taxable in the year of payout. Answer would change if this were a 402(g) excess, though.
  15. Do you, in your software, utilize separate line-item accounting for the hard assets versus the receivable? If so, you can probably check a box in the software to exclude the receivable sub-account from the calculations. Like if account #201 is the mutual funds and account 202 is the receivable, only account 201 gets included.
  16. (and if loans are automatically due/payable upon termination of employment, you're looking directly at 6/30 even if the guy tried to make some partial repayments now thinking following the schedule buys him into a future quarter.)
  17. Aren't top heavy values done on a cash basis in a PS plan after the first year?
  18. The problems are (1) a SIMPLE can be a company's only retirement plan for the year (save for the new SECURE 2 language letting companies convert midyear specifically to a safe harbor 401k plan) so having a SEP for the same year would run afoul, and (2) if you own both businesses, the IRS will look at the companies under common control as though they were one single employer for benefits testing. In other words, just having a second plan (for the sole prop) would require you to consider the LLC's employees in terms of the overall who-can-get-what
  19. I would think 10 should be okay in your test, but how to code that is definitely a different issue.
  20. First thing - does your plan sponsor actually pay those types of wages such that you "need" to account for it? If so, then you then will have to decide (if the plan doesn't do that for you) how 414s comp will be defined for your testing. Sounds like it may not be allocation-eligible compensation, but could still need to be part of your testing compensation.
  21. I'd include him with those wages. If they'd been paid fully in 2022 that pay would have counted as eligible for everything and I wouldn't suggest the employer somehow gets an "out" here because the final paycheck delayed into the next year.
  22. I read that as age 62 is 3 years early, so her normal retirement benefit gets multiplied by 12/15
  23. Plan excludes non-resident aliens with no U.S. source income, right? This is someone who doesn't live in the US and also isn't a US citizen?
  24. I suppose in the big picture, the IRS would have to (a) choose the plan, (b) be aware of the rule, and (c) interpret the rule specifically to say a money market transfer would indeed not count. But as it does apply towards specifically the MRC, perhaps there's an "easy" out if the sponsor exceeds the MRC by 50,000 or more for the year. The plan document does specify employer contributions will be made in cash. Anyway, Peter's comments are sort of my original thoughts - if this *is* a mild blip in terms of doing it perfectly, what's the proper fix? Returned as a mistake of fact or based in nondeductibility, and then re-contributed as "actual" cash? Sell it for cash (to whom) ASAP and then re-purchase it with that cash? Is there a 15% penalty for the use of the money by the plan for a month? Seems like a molehill with mountainesque ambitions.
