"Terminated employee in DC Plan elected a lump sum. 20% was withheld as required. The 20% sat in the plan until the following plan year when it was sent to the IRS. The 80% that the employee received as a lump sum was shown on the 5500-SF in the year it was received. The 20% withholding was shown on the following year's 5500-SF (because it sat in the plan assets until the following plan year). Are there potential penalties for this? Can this be rectified?"
