Who is responsible for keeping track of the designated Roth contributions and 5-taxable-year period?

The plan administrator is responsible for keeping track of the amount of designated Roth contributions made for each employee and the date of the first designated Roth contribution for calculating an employee’s 5-taxable-year period. In addition, the plan administrator of a plan directly rolling over a distribution would be required to provide the plan administrator of the recipient plan (i.e., the plan accepting the eligible rollover distribution) with a statement indicating either the first year of the 5-taxable-year period for the employee and the portion of such distribution attributable to basis or that the distribution is a qualified distribution.
