CAB 14-1: The IRS has issued Notice 2013-74, providing guidance on the expanded types of amounts eligible for in-plan Roth rollovers within 401(k), 403(b), or 457(b) governmental retirement plans. These amounts, which became eligible for in-plan Roth rollover treatment in 2013 under the 2012 American Taxpayer Relief Act, include sums that are otherwise not distributable to participants under the terms of the plan, such as elective deferrals, matching contributions and nonelective contributions, and annual deferrals made to 457(b) governmental plans. The IRS’s new guidance also includes deadlines for adopting plan amendments to provide for these in-plan Roth rollovers of such otherwise nondistributable amounts, as well as rules applicable to all in-plan Roth rollovers.
