IRS Issues Reminder about Filing Multiple Employee Plan Return Extensions

November 26, 2011
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) posted a reminder on its website that it will not process any Form 5558, the request for extension of time to file Form 5500, Form 5330 and Form 8955-SSA, if the Form 5558 requests an extension for more than three employee benefit plans. If the IRS receives a Form 5558 that lists more than three plans between now and July 31, 2012, the Form 5558 will be returned to the filer to submit separate Forms 5558 for each plan on the list. After July 31,2012, such Forms 5558 will not be returned, nor will they be processed. A link to this reminder is available here.
