Capwell Answers Questions on Deferred Compensation

July 21, 2009

Jeff Capwell was recently featured in a question and answer column in Compliance Week. The column provides recommendations for addressing failures to comply with Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code. Section 409A imposes strict requirements for nonqualified deferred compensation plans. Failure to comply with those requirements can result in significant taxes, penalties and interest for executives. Members of the McGuireWoods executive compensation practice have been frequently quoted in the press over the past few years on Section 409A issues.
