March 15 was a big day for your clients that sponsor 401(k) plans. It is the deadline for them to complete their Actual Deferral Percentage test. Unfortunately, the results of this test can upset retirement planning for highly compensated employees. Failing the test leads to them getting money back instead of being able to leave it invested for the future.
