IMMEDIATE EXTENSION OF 2009 FORM 5500 FILINGS

The AICPA has submitted a request to the Department of Labor, Internal Revenue Service, Department of Treasury and Pension Benefit Guaranty Agency urging them to provide an automatic extension of two months for filing 2009 Forms 5500/5500-SF. The request is for a one-time special extension due to the changes in the implementation of new electronic filing requirements, the late release of forms, the first-time applicability of many filing requirements to section 403(b) plans, and the increased reporting requirements on Schedule C. The request was prepared by the AICPA Form 5500 Task Force and approved by the AICPA Employee Benefits Tax Technical Resource Panel and Tax Executive Committee.
