Volunteers Needed to Test Pay.gov
Employee Plan’s Determination Letter Program will be testing Pay.gov for paying determination letter application user fees. If you would like to volunteer to pay your user fee using pay.gov, please email, Joanna.firstname.lastname@example.org. Pay.gov is a secure government-wide portal for payments to federal government agencies.
Thanks to those who have already volunteered; we should be contacting you soon.
After the annual user fees are announced in Revenue Procedure 2013-8, practitioners filing a Form 5300 series determination letter application can use Pay.gov to:
- complete an online equivalent of Form 8717, User Fee for Employee Plan Determination, Opinion, and Advisory Letter Request, and
- pay the user fee via a bank account, credit, or debit card.
Pay.gov users can print and attach the payment confirmation page, instead of a Form 8717, to their Form 5300 application to show they paid the user fee.
