IRS, DOL and PBGC Plan AuditsPrinter Friendly (PDF)
Compliance with the numerous legislative and regulatory rules governing employee benefit plans is the cornerstone of Trucker Huss’ practice. Our experience and expertise in reviewing and understanding these rules allows us to offer the highest quality counseling to our clients.
We work closely with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Department of Labor (DOL) on public policy issues that impact our clients. We support the cutting edge issues that form legislation and respond to requests for feedback from government agencies on legislative and regulatory proposals.
Receiving notice of an IRS or DOL audit concerning an employee benefit plan (including retirement, executive compensation, and health and welfare plans) or notice of an audit concerning PBGC insurance premiums can be daunting. In these situations, we serve as employee benefits counselors to our clients. Legal activities and support include:
- Facilitating and supporting clients during IRS, DOL or PBGC audit meetings
- Handling all correspondence, phone calls and contact with the IRS, DOL or PBGC
- Drafting written responses to legal issues raised by the IRS, DOL or PBGC
- Negotiating closing agreements in resolution of the audit
