Issuers and plan sponsors will only be required to file Form 720 once a year. Per the IRS, “Issuers and plan sponsors who are required to pay the PCORI fee as well as other liabilities on a Form 720 will use their Form 720 for the second quarter to report and pay the PCORI fee that is due July 31. Only one Form 720 should be filed for each quarter.” For a short-term year, the PCORI fee is due on July 31 of the following year.
