IRS Issues Long-Awaited Proposed Regulations for 403(b) Plans
November 18, 2004
A notice of proposed rulemaking published this week by the Internal Revenue Service is aimed at conforming the regulations governing 403(b) plans to reflect numerous pension and tax law changes that have been enacted over the past three decades. In addition, the proposed rules are aimed at further diminishing the differences between 401(k) plan rules and those for the 403(b) plans. The rules would become effective for tax year 2006. The IRS must receive comments on the rules by February 14, 2005. A public hearing has been scheduled for February 15.
