"Tax Reform – How it Could Affect Your Compensation Programs"

The overhaul of the tax code Congress passed in December has a significant effect on an employer’s and employee’s treatment of compensation and benefits including executive compensation, fringe benefits, and retirement plans. By understanding the impact of these rule changes, organizations can lessen or avoid unfavorable consequences and take advantage of new opportunities. During this presentation, members of Grant Thornton LLP’s Human Capital Services team will provide an in depth analysis of the key aspects of the new tax bill that affect compensation matters.

Learning objectives include:

  • Interpret the impact of changes to the §162(m) $1M deduction limit for public companies, including transition relief
  • Analyze a new opportunity to defer taxation on stock options and restricted stock units
  • Appraise the impact on tax-exempt organizations, including the 21% excise tax on highly compensated employees
  • Plan for new income tax withholding rates
