The IRS has issued a proposed rule permitting governmental plans to comply with the required minimum distribution rules under Code Sec. 401(a)(9) by using a “reasonable good faith interpretation” of the statute. Under the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (P.L. 109280; PPA), the Secretary of the Treasury was instructed to issue such regulations under which a governmental plan shall be treated as having complied with Code Sec. 401(a)(9) if the plan complied with a “reasonable good faith interpretation” of section 401(a)(9).
The regulations are proposed to be applicable for all years to which Code Sec. 401(a)(9) applies. Written or electronic comments and requests for a public hearing must be received by October 8, 2008.
