On December 16, 2019, the Treasury and IRS released proposed regulations addressing the changes made to section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code as part of the 2017 tax law commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). Section 162(m) generally disallows a deduction for compensation paid in any tax year to a covered employee of a publicly held corporation that exceeds $1 million. The TCJA and these proposed regulations significantly expanded the scope and application of section 162(m) by amending key definitions and eliminating frequently used exceptions. While the guidance has shed additional light on how to apply these changes and their implications, there remain open questions and areas that will present new challenges for taxpayers.
