Future Developments For the latest information about developments related to Form 8951 and its instructions, such as legislation enacted after they were published, go to www.irs.gov/form8951. What's New The IRS has classified fees associated with the Voluntary Correction Program (VCP) as user fees subject to section 7528. For 2016, user fees for VCP submissions are set forth in Rev. Proc. 2016-8, section 6.08. User fees for VCP submissions are currently published as part of the annual revenue procedure for the user fee program of the IRS as it pertains to requests for letter rulings, determination letters, etc., on matters under the jurisdiction of the Commissioner, Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division. Beginning in 2017 and each year thereafter, the user fees for VCP submissions will be published as part of an annual Employee Plans revenue procedure. Taxpayers should refer to the revenue procedure in effect at the time they file their submission with the IRS to determine the VCP user fee. The IRS no longer lists specific user fee amounts on this form. Applicants will enter the applicable fee amount when completing the form. For the current user fees, go to the applicable annual revenue procedure or IRS.gov at www.irs.gov/ retirement-plans/voluntary-correctionprogram-fees. General Instructions Purpose of Form Generally, a user fee is required with each VCP submission. Use Form 8951 to submit the applicable fee for the VCP submission. Attach a check to Form 8951 payable to the "United States Treasury" for the full amount of the fee. If you do not include the full amount of the fee, your submission may be returned or closed with no action. In addition, include a photocopy of the check with your VCP submission. If you have multiple plans (for example, a profit-sharing and a money purchase plan), submit a separate VCP submission (including a separate Form 8951) for each plan. Submit a separate check, including a photocopy of the check, for each VCP submission. Your check may be converted to an electronic fund transfer. An electronic fund transfer is the process by which the IRS electronically instructs your financial institution to transfer funds from your account to the Treasury's account, rather than processing your check. By sending your completed, signed check to the IRS, you authorize the IRS to copy your check and to use the account information from your check to make an electronic fund transfer from your account for the same amount as the check. If the electronic fund transfer cannot be processed for technical reasons, you authorize the IRS to process the copy of your check. The electronic fund transfer from your account will usually occur within 24 hours, which is faster than a check is normally processed, so it is important that you have sufficient funds available in your checking account when you send the IRS your check. Your financial institution will not return your cancelled check to you. Information about correcting plan errors and examples of how to determine the user fee is available at www.irs.gov/retirementplans/correcting-plan-errors. checks to the IRS for any fee matters unless the applicant has received specific instructions from the IRS.
