The Internal Revenue Service Friday issued a proposed rule implementing a provision of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 that imposed a 21% excise tax on certain executive compensation paid by tax-exempt organizations. Under the proposed rule, any deferred compensation arrangement or retention or retirement bonus not vested prior to the first taxable year beginning after Dec. 31, 2017 is subject to the tax. The agency will accept comments on the proposed rule for 60 days after its publication in the June 11 Federal Register. AHA has urged Congress to provide an exception for existing contracts or nonqualified deferred compensation plans for applicable tax-exempt organizations.
