This notice provides guidance on certain executive compensation provisions of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (EESA). Section 302 of EESA added new sections 162(m)(5) and 280G(e) to the Code. Section 162(m) limits the deductibility of compensation paid to certain corporate executives and section 280G provides that a corporate executive’s excess parachute payments are not deductible and imposes (under Code section 4999) an excise tax on the executive for those amounts.

Notice 2008-98 Notice 2008-98

This notice provides that the IRS and Treasury intend to amend the normal retirement age regulations to change the effective date for governmental plans to plan years beginning on or after January 1, 2011. This will give governmental plans two additional years to comply with the requirements in the normal retirement age regulations.
