Release Date: 

The IRS issued rules requiring companies to file a new letter of determination every five years, based on a five-year reporting cycle determined by employer identification numbers. In Announcement 2015-19, the IRS said it would eliminate the fiver-year remedial amendment cycles effective after January 1, 2017. Because of the timing of the change, the IRS will continue accepting applications for Cycle A plan through January 31, 2017, which is the end of that cycle's submission period.
