|Pension Rights Center Comment Letter to IRS on Notice 2021-40, Physical Presence Requirement for Spousal Consents (PDF)|
Pension Rights Center

[T]he burden to justify any permanent change rests on the industry and business groups that have been heavily lobbying Treasury-IRS to eliminate the physical presence requirement for spousal consents.... [T]he business community"s arguments do not hold up, and should not be credited to support any permanent weakening of spousal protections."
