Event Detail

Jamie Hutchinson co-presented during an audio conference hosted by BNA.  The program covered many issues clarified by the recently issued Treasury Department regulations governing nonqualified deferred compensation under section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code.  "Good reason terminations," treatment of stock options, severance arrangements, requirements for payment elections, options for identifying who are "specified employees," and split-dollar life insurance arrangements are among the areas of concern tackled in these long-awaited rules, which went into effect January 1, 2008.  In addition, the program will cover...
