– Plans is not electing the Payroll tax deferral - The payroll tax deferral provided under the President’s Executive Order provides for the deferral of certain tax withholding until 2021.  Please note, the Executive Order provides only for the deferral of the taxes; it is not a waiver of your tax withholding obligation. The payroll tax deferral is optional at the election of the paying agent (employer or Plan).  Because of the increased administrative burden associated with implementing the payroll tax deferral and the increased tax withholding that will be required to be applied to wages paid in 2021 to recoup the deferral, the Trustees have decided not to implement the withholding at this time.  Since the Plans are not deferring withholding taxes, the taxes will continue to be withheld from your wages and remitted to the IRS as usual.
