Figured I'd get the ball rolling on this. Hopefully there are no issues with the form.

Filled it out with my answers. I'd be interested to see the stats for this.

Does anybody remember what #26 was? It's a pretty even split between 3 answers right now

My guess is that it was the prohibited transaction question and my guess is also that #39 was the AFTAP. #39 is pretty evenly split too.

34 was the AFTAP one where you needed to calculate the new amount of prefunding balance. I can't remember what 39 was

That AFTAP one was driving me crazy because I felt like I knew how to do it but I kept getting 32,000 something for the decrease. All I did was get the LY AFTAP of 68%, find the presumed FT at 58% and then decrease the PFB s.t. it was = 60%. But that only decreased my 350,000 PFB to still too far outside of the largest range so I know something was wrong

Don't you have to waive to get to 80%? That's when limitations on accelerated distributions begin to apply. The only problem is as of 4/1 the presumed AFTAP is 58% and there isn't enough funding balance to get to 80 (only enough to get to like, 78). I used 68% instead of 58% (assuming they meant 3/31?) and got an answer that fell nicely in the implied range. I believe it was D. I questioned it a ton though
