ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Jun 29, 2018 Jkt 244001 The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) is changing how it announces relief from filing deadlines and penalties when a disaster occurs. Under an Announcement made today, PBGC’s disaster relief will be available at the same time the Internal Revenue Service issues disaster relief for taxpayers that includes filing extensions for the Form 5500 series. Filers will not have to wait for PBGC to issue a separate announcement. For premium filings, PBGC is changing its practice so that in addition to no late payment penalty charges, no late payment interest charges will be assessed for the disaster relief period. DATES: The Disaster Relief Announcement in this notice is effective for disasters for which the Internal Revenue Service has issued a disaster relief news release on or after July 2, 2018. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stephanie Cibinic, Deputy Assistant General Counsel for Regulatory Affairs, Office of the General Counsel, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, 1200 K Street NW, Washington, DC 20005– 4026; cibinic.stephanie@pbgc.gov; 202– 326–4400 extension 6352. TTY users may call the Federal relay service tollfree at 800–877–8339 and ask to be connected to 202–326–4400 extension 6352. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background When there is a disaster covered by Internal Revenue Code section 1033(h)(3), Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) section 4002(i) gives the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) authority to extend deadlines by notice or otherwise. PBGC has followed a practice of posting a disaster relief announcement on its website each time the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) posts a disaster relief news release that includes filing extensions for the Annual Return/Report of Employee Benefit Plan Form 5500 Series. Each PBGC disaster relief announcement copies the disaster, disaster area, and relief period from the IRS news release on which it is based. Except for these types of fields, the text in PBGC disaster relief announcements is boilerplate that is repeated in every announcement. IRS issues a separate disaster relief news release for each state affected by a disaster. Each news release lists the names of counties in the state that are covered by the relief. IRS may add newly affected counties to an existing news release. PBGC filers have to rely on a statement in each PBGC PO 00000 Frm 00083 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30991 announcement that the corresponding IRS news release should be checked for other counties that IRS might have added. Because PBGC’s announcements rely on data from IRS news releases, PBGC’s announcements are always issued later than IRS’ news releases. PBGC filers have to wait for PBGC to respond to each IRS disaster relief news release before they can be certain that PBGC is providing disaster relief. PBGC is changing its practice to simplify how it announces disaster relief by referring PBGC filers directly to IRS’ disaster relief news releases. Filers will no longer have to wait for PBGC to act, because PBGC’s disaster relief will be keyed to IRS’ news releases. Instead of multiple disaster relief announcements, all explaining disaster relief in the same repetitive language, PBGC will have one simple announcement that clearly explains how PBGC disaster relief is keyed to IRS relief, what circumstances generally lead to relief, and the nature of relief generally granted. The qualifications for disaster relief and relief granted will be simpler and easier to apply. Formerly, relief was described separately for premiums, single-employer plan terminations, reportable events notices, annual employer reporting, administrative review, and multiemployer plan filings. This detail is unnecessary because, no matter the type of PBGC filing or whether the plan is a multiemployer or single-employer plan, the deadline extension is simply the end of the IRS relief period for due dates that fall within that period. As with the current practice, there are exceptions to this general ‘‘IRS-based’’ relief, which are listed in the Announcement. Filers would still be able to request relief on a case-by-case basis for the excepted filings or other actions not covered by the general relief. PBGC also makes the following changes and clarifications in the Announcement, which are designed to be helpful to plan sponsors: • Formerly, a late premium payment eligible for disaster relief and paid by the end of the relief period was treated as timely for purposes of assessing the late payment penalty, but not the applicable interest charge. Under PBGC’s new practice, the premium payment due date is extended so that no late payment penalty or interest charges will be assessed for the disaster relief period. • Formerly, premium filers had to submit the premium form and payment owed (‘‘the premium filing’’) by the end of the relief period for disaster relief to apply. Under PBGC’s new practice, E:\FR\FM\02JYN1.SGM 02JYN1
