Senate Panel Mulls Changes in Rules on Nonqualified Deferred Compensation

Here’s news from this Towers Watson blog; here’s the intro:

As part of a series of hearings on tax reform, the Senate Finance Committee recently held a hearing on the issue of fairness in the tax code. In connection with the hearing, the committee’s ranking Democrat, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), released a report on tax avoidance strategies that outlines possible recommendations for reforming nonqualified deferred compensation (NQDC) as part of an expected tax reform proposal. In his opening statement, Sen. Wyden noted that the report is intended to “shed some light on some of the most egregious tax loopholes around.” Rocks!

I guarantee that you will agree that this is the best 20-second promo around!
