Qualified Retirement Plans or Group Retirement Plans (like 401(k), profit-sharing, stock bonus, defined benefit, and hybrid plans) offer significant tax advantages to both employers and employees.
Employers are generally permitted to deduct their contributions on federal income tax returns, while participants can benefit from pretax contributions and tax-deferred growth.
In return for these tax benefits, a qualified plan must adhere to strict IRC (Internal Revenue Code) and ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act) guidelines regarding participation in the plan, vesting, funding, nondiscrimination, disclosure, and fiduciary matters.
