Form 5500 Extended Filing Deadline
Last quarter, we reported that as part of the Surface Transportation and Veterans Health Care Choice Improvement Act of 2015, the extension period for Form 5500 had been increased to 3 ½ months, instead of the previous 2 ½ months.
On December 4th, the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act of 2015 was signed into law. As the result of lobbying efforts by the pension community, the Act included a repeal of this new extended filing deadline. Consequently, there will be no change in the extended due date of Form 5500.
