From a ROBS 401k and a Solo 401k plan perspective, you might receive examination or compliance check letters.The EPCU develops compliance projects and performs data analysis to focus on areas of potential non-compliance.
- Taxpayers are initially contacted by correspondence, but the EPCU may follow up with additional letters and/or telephone calls.
- Most issues are resolved without an on-site examination of the books and records of the plan, saving time and money for both the taxpayer and the IRS.
- To date, the EPCU has completed 70 projects and conducted over 41,000 compliance checks.
These projects have been approved for further development by the Project Approval Committee. The projects are then prioritized with other approved projects and may be started based on a variety of factors, including staffing resources, time commitments, and potential project workload volume.
