Important Filing Deadlines – Monday, October 16, 2017

Tax Deadlines 
The final deadline to file individual tax return Forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ for the year 2016 is October 16, 2017. It is also the final day to fund a SEP-IRA or solo 401(k) for tax year 2016. 

If you have any questions or concerns about your tax return for the upcoming deadline, please give us a call at 262.797.0400.

Audit Deadlines
The extended deadline for filing Form 5500, Annual Return/Report of Employee Benefit Plan, is October 16, 2017. 

As we near the deadline, ensure that you are retaining documentation of compliance testing, corrections (if applicable), and any other pertinent information.  Whether your plan requires an audit or not, it’s important to file your 5500 in a timely manner to avoid paying penalties for late filing.  Also, as your plan nears the end of its 2017 plan year, it’s never too early to start planning for next year’s 5500 filing.  

Did you know that Vrakas audits over 65 benefit plans annually? For more information on benefit plan audit services, visit Vrakas CPAs + Advisors.
