Review of Section 409A Proposed Regulations

By on August 9, 2016

On June 22, 2016, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued proposed changes to the regulations under the Internal Revenue Code (Code) §409A. The Code intends to clarify or modify a wide range of very restrictive rules pertaining to “nonqualified” deferred compensation plans as well as other types of compensation arrangements that may defer compensation. The proposed changes are designed to benefit taxpayers, with a few intending to close potential loopholes.

The following PowerPoint highlights key points from the proposed regulations and what employers and employees should know and can expect moving forward.
