There is a developing trend among states to enact legislation requiring employers without retirement plans to enroll their employees in a payroll deduction individual retirement account (IRA) program run by the state, unless the employee opts out. A number of state legislatures have already passed laws to create these mandatory programs and several more states have been considering them.

1Under the SECURE Act, tax credits may be available to help you offset your first three years of plan startup costs in an amount equal to 50% of qualified startup costs paid or incurred, but limited to the greater of (1) $500 or (2) the lesser of (a) $250 for each non-highly compensated employee who is eligible to participate in the plan or (b) $5,000. In general, “qualified startup costs” are ordinary and necessary expenses of an eligible employer which are paid or incurred in connection with the establishment or administration of an eligible employer plan, or the retirement-related education of employees with respect to a plan if the plan has at least one participant who is not a highly compensated employee. Employers should be advised to consult their tax advisors concerning eligibility for the credit. The Secure 2.0 Act, enacted December 29, 2022, extended the $5,000/year tax credit for the first 3 years to 100% of qualified startup costs for businesses with 50 or fewer employees.
2Under Internal Revenue Code Section 45E(f), added by the SECURE 2.0 Act, businesses with 50 or fewer employees may qualify for tax credits for employer contributions for eligible employees (i.e., those who make $100,000 or less). In the first 2 years of the plan, the credit is 100% of the employer contribution capped at $1,000/eligible employee, in year 3 of the plan it is 75% of the employer contribution capped at $1,000/eligible employee, in year 4 of the plan it is 50% of the employer contribution capped at $1,000/eligible employee and in year 5 of the plan, it is 25% of the employer contribution capped at $1,000/eligible employee. This credit is phased out for employers with 51 – 100 employees.
