Form 5500-EZ: Soup to Nuts
Date: 6/28/2011 Start Time: 12:00 PM (ET) Duration: 100 min.
The IRS has issued the new 2009 form! As a result, we have rescheduled this Web seminar to 12:00 noon ET on Thursday, June 30, 2011, to allow speakers time to review the new form, so that you get the most up-to-date information.
With all the other changes inherent in EFAST2, practitioners also had to deal with a new Form 5500-EZ. This Form can be used by owner-only plans and must be used by foreign plans.
The program takes a close look at Form 5500-EZ. We’ll examine who can file, who must file, when to file, and how to file. We’ll go through the form line-by-line in depth. If you want a thorough understanding of the EZ form, you want to attend this seminar.
