IRS Changes to Group Exemptions and Group Returns

Posted on

Are you under the Group Exemption umbrella? If so, take note and contact your Group Ruling Holder

As of January 1, 2019, IRS stopped mailing lists of parent and subsidiary accounts to central organizations (group ruling holders) for verification and return. Central organizations must still comply with the annual reporting requirements in Section 6 of Revenue Procedure 80-27. As noted in the Revenue Procedure, the required information must be submitted at least 90 days before the close of the central organization’s annual accounting period. So, for example, a central organization with a June 30, 2019 year end would submit its update by April 1, 2019. The required information includes the names, addresses, and employer identification numbers of subordinate organizations that have terminated, disaffiliated from the group, been added to the group, or changed names or addresses. If there are no changes, the central organization must submit a statement to that effect.
