Summaries of Excess Remuneration Excise Tax (IRC 4960) Final Regulations

DownloadWith the new year came final regulations under section 4960, interpreting the excise tax on excess remuneration paid by tax-exempt organizations to covered employees. They are effective for tax years beginning after December 31, 2021; before then, exempt organizations may rely either on Notice 2019-09 or the proposed regulations instead, but only if they do so in their entirety. Numerous commentators have now created helpful summaries of the final rules, including:

  • Law Firms
    • Ropes & Gray (a detailed summary)
    • Steptoe (highlighting changes from the proposed regulations)
  • Accounting Firms
    • Deloitte (a particularly detailed summary)
    • EY
    • Grant Thornton (a particularly detailed summary)
    • KPMG
    • PWC (highlighting changes from the proposed regulations)
