409A Correction Program


Recommended Posts

CuseFan is correct, there is no prohibition and it is reported as taxable compensation to the employee.  But first, read the document/agreement.

It is not uncommon for the document/agreement to contain a 409A Gross-Up Payment clause spelling out terms and conditions of such a payment.  For example, you may find provisions specifying timing of the gross-up payment and the tax year of the individual in which the gross-up will be paid and be taxable income, specifying how the gross-up will be calculated, specifying obligations of the individual to work with the company to contest the claim or to cooperate with the company's legal counsel, and other related details.

Nothing on gross-up. The Plan does provide that the Participant is solely responsible for all 409A penalties, and Employer has no obligation to indemnify. This is the 20% excise tax payable when correcting a mistaken deferral under the 2008-113 program. Thanks
