Executive Benefits: Impact of Tax Reform

January 22, 2018 | 2:00pm - 3:00pm EST

About the Webinar

This webinar addresses how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act affects executive compensation. In particular, new Section 4960 of the tax code imposes a 21% excise tax on credit unions and other tax-exempt employers for providing compensation in excess of $1 million to any individual and for paying "parachute payments."  Our experts will discuss how to determine if your credit union is affected and adjustments you can make to minimize or eliminate the taxes.
