5. 2020 Form 5500 Electronic Filing Department of Labor Credentials:  As the 2020 Form 5500 must be electronically filed, should R.J.L. be electronically filing this form on your behalf, the fee to do so is $250.  Should you wish to electronically file your Form 5500 and avoid this additional fee, you will need to obtain DOL filing authorization credentials which may only be obtained by you directly through the Department of Labor.  Attached is a summary sheet explaining the instructions for obtaining your Department of Labor filing authorization credentials.  Please obtain your filing credentials now, if you have not obtained them previously (as the same credentials apply from year to year) so that by the time your Form 5500 is due, your filing credentials have already been obtained and you are ready to electronically file.  The filing authorization credentials are specific to and travel with the signer.  If the Form 5500 plan sponsor signer has changed, new DOL filing credentials will need to be obtained by the new signer.  (The exception for electronic filing is owner-only plans).  If you are having difficulties in obtaining your DOL credentials, please contact our office for assistance.
