Executive Compensation Limitations: New IRS Section 162(m) Guidance and Key Planning Tips


Nov. 13, 2018
Recorded Online

Section 162(m) under tax reform. Counsel must understand the restrictions on specific executive compensation structures, including the transition rule concerning grandfathered arrangements, compensation paid under written binding and other complex items impacting compensation planning.

Tax reform amended Section 162(m) significantly by removing the performance-based pay exception, broadening the definition of “covered employees,” and providing specific rules applicable to written binding contracts. Other restrictions provided in Notice 2018-68 limit the availability of grandfathering relief for existing arrangements and effect the deduction limitation in certain corporate transactions. Counsel must be knowledgeable of crucial planning issues stemming from amended Section 162(m) and IRS Notice 2018-68 and acquire planning techniques to avoid unattended pitfalls in structuring compensation arrangements.
