Important Retirement Plan Dates and Updates

There are many tax deadlines and requirements this time of year. Don’t forget Employer contributions to a Profit Sharing Plan for a Plan year ending on December 31, 2016 must be deposited into the plan by the due date of your business tax return, including any extensions. If you extend your tax return, you still have the option of filing by the original due date, while still taking advantage of the extra time to deposit the contributions into the plan.
