The SECURE 2.0 Act of 2022, passed by Congress in December, included a provision that allows plan sponsors to give employees the option to take employer contributions on a Roth after-tax basis. As a leading provider of 401(k) plans, Capital Group is committed to offering Roth employer contributions in our PlanPremier® and RecordkeeperDirect® solutions.
However, clarification from the IRS is needed on several aspects of the provision, including how to report employee taxes on Roth employer contributions. As a result, the timing of this feature remains unknown as we and other recordkeepers continue to await IRS guidance. We’ll communicate updates as they’re available.
