This document contains final regulations regarding the application of section 409A to nonqualified deferred compensation plans.
The final regulations are necessary to clarify and explain the rules governing the application of section 409A to nonqualified deferred compensation plans.
It is the policy of the Service to publish in the Bulletin all substantive rulings necessary to promote a uniform application of the tax laws, including all rulings that supersede, revoke, modify, or amend any of those previously published in the Bulletin.
All published rulings apply retroactively unless otherwise indicated.
Bank Secrecy Act Administrative Rulings are issued by the Department of the Treasury’s Office of the Assistant Secretary (Enforcement).
This part includes notices of proposed rulemakings, disbarment and suspension lists, and announcements.
In addition, the IRS received written and electronic comments responding to the notice of proposed rulemaking. 307 (transition guidance with respect to certain outstanding stock rights); (3) Notice 2006-33, 2006-15 I. The final regulations clarify that the exemption from coverage under section 409A for certain welfare plans does not apply to medical expense reimbursements that constitute taxable income to the service provider.
After consideration of all the comments, the proposed regulations are adopted as amended by this Treasury decision. The Treasury Department and the IRS have also issued six additional notices providing transition guidance with respect to section 409A: (1) Notice 2005-94, 2005-2 C. 1208 (transition guidance with respect to 2005 reporting and withholding obligations); (2) Notice 2006-4, 2006-3 I. The coverage exemption applies only to arrangements that provide benefits that are excludable from gross income under section 105 or section 106.
Rulings and procedures reported in the Bulletin do not have the force and effect of Treasury Department Regulations, but they may be used as precedents.
However, the final regulations provide that for purposes of the short-term deferral rule, an amount is treated as paid when it is included in income under section 457(f) whether or not an actual or constructive payment occurs.
Accordingly, where the income inclusion under section 457(f) stems from the lapse of a substantial risk of forfeiture that is also treated as a substantial risk of forfeiture for purposes of section 409A, the amount included in income will be considered a short-term deferral for purposes of section 409A.
The Bulletin is divided into four parts as follows: To the extent practicable, pertinent cross references to these subjects are contained in the other Parts and Subparts.
Also included in this part are Bank Secrecy Act Administrative Rulings.
The regulations provide a definition of a nonqualified deferred compensation plan subject to section 409A, including rules related to the statutory effective date, and rules governing initial and subsequent deferral elections, the establishment of the time and form of payment, and the acceleration of payments under a plan.
