Most Employers Have Concerns About Having A 401(k).

We Have Solutions.

Compliance Issues​​

In 2020, 67% of audits conducted by DOL resulted in monetary fines or other corrective action. 

Tag Resources administrative process is designed to meet DOL random audit requirements on a realtime basis.​

Huge Liability

Employers often do not know the liability they take on. Any employer who understands it does not want the risk. We mitigate that risk for you.

As named fiduciary on your plan we mitigate liability risk for you. ​

Overpriced Plans​

Small business owners are sometimes already financially stretched and cannot afford a high priced retirement solution that works. TAG is the answer other companies retirement providers cannot match.

The National Dental Retirement Solution is a “pooled” retirement plan, meaning that we pool many company plans to together. This gives our clients some of the lowest prices and the most extensive services in the industry.

Administration​

When offering a retirement plan to your people, you're held to the highest standards under the law.  If you don't have the required expertise in house, you need to hire professionals to help you stay compliant with ERISA in offering the best plan to your employees.

Administration on the plan is done by TAG Resources. TAG Resources employees are all trained on ERISA law and TAG has ERISA lawyers on staff and on retainer.

Department of Labor audits can be costly for your business!

The IRS penalty for late filing of a 5500-series return is $25 per day, up to a maximum of $15,000. The DOL penalty for late filing can run up to $1,100 per day, with no maximum.
