Leominster, MA (PressExposure) October 22, 2009 -- Hackler Associates provides corporations with full service retirement plan administration and consulting. Both William R., and William D. Hackler have been approved by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to practice before the IRS on certain retirement plan issues.
Very few retirement plan administrators hold this designation and to obtain it, the Hacklers passed two comprehensive exams given by the IRS. Both were eligible to take the exams because of their thorough knowledge of Tax Code requirements that apply to qualified plans and the ethical requirements under Circular 230 for practicing before the IRS.
The IRS has established that only those authorized to practice before the IRS can sign the a Power of Attorney form including attorneys, certified public accountants, actuaries, appraisers and enrolled agents. As a result of this IRS procedural change, retirement plan professionals must also have this designation. With the ERPA designation, the Hacklers will continue to communicate with the IRS regarding retirement plan audits.
Hackler Associates is located at 975 Merriam Avenue, Suite 200 in Leominster. For more information, contact 978-847-0140 or visit the website at http://www.HacklerInc.com
