IRS: Help Us With 414(x) Rules

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

The Internal Revenue Service wants advice about how it should implement a new law that will let employers offer defined benefit pension plans and defined contribution plans on a combined basis.

The Internal Revenue Service discusses the new, combined Section 414(x) plans in IRS Notice 2009-71.

Internal Revenue Code Section 414(x) was added to the code by Section 903(a) of the Pension Protection Act of 2006.

“An eligible combined plan provides a vehicle through which an employer can maintain both a defined contribution plan and a defined benefit plan on a combined basis, thus reducing the administrative burdens and costs of maintaining separate plans,” officials write in the notice.

Officials describe how a Section 414(x) plan would work, then ask for written comments about issues that commenters want the IRS to address in upcoming guidance.

The comments are due Oct. 15.
