401 Chaos created a topic in Form 5500

Email from DOL About Unfiled Form 5500 -- Is Client Still Eligible for DFVCP?

"Client recently received an email from DOL -- Office of the Chief Accountant, Division of Reporting Compliance -- indicating that its 5500 for 2020 is missing. The email includes an invitation to consider participating in DFVCP to pay reduced penalties for failure to file in a timely manner. Email also provides links to DFVCP FAQs, one of which notes plans are eligible to file under DFVCP so long as they have not received written notice from the Department of a failure to file their 5500.

Huh? We've seen situations where folks received notice from the IRS and then filed under DFVCP before any DOL notice but this DOL notice appears to be the first notice the plan has received.

Is the email they received sufficient to prevent them from using DFVCP or is this short of the disqualifying notice indicated in the FAQs. Is this a new process or have we just not been privy to this before?"
