Determination Letters - Need a Copy or a Correction?

You must request copies of an original or a corrected determination letter in writing by mail or fax. We do not accept telephone or email requests at this time. Please do not submit a copy of your original EP determination letter application with your request.

How do I request a copy of a previously issued letter?
Please provide the:

  • Name of the plan sponsor
  • Plan sponsor's EIN
  • Plan number
  • Plan name
  • Year the letter was issued (not required, but helpful)
  • Form 2848, Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative, if applicable
  • Fax number to which the reprinted letter should be sent (if you want the copy mailed, please send your name and address)

How do I request a corrected letter?
Include the following:

  • Copy of the letter that needs correction
  • Your fax number (if no fax number is given, we will mail the letter to the address on record)
  • Form 2848, Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative, if applicable
  • Your phone number
  • Detailed explanation of the error in the original determination letter (include copies of any amendments in question)
  • If the original determination letter references a proposed amendment and you are requesting a correction to the letter that is:
    • unrelated to the proposed amendment - the plan sponsor must sign the proposed amendment within 91 days of the original determination letter date, or
    • related to the proposed amendment -  the IRS will extend the 91-day deadline for executing the amendment only if it determined that the IRS issued the letter with an error directly related to the proposed amendment.
