Deferred compensation refers to any arrangement in which a portion of your income is paid out at a specific date after which the income is actually earned. Common examples of deferred compensation include stock options, pensions, and non-qualified deferred compensation retirement plans. The primary benefit of deferring compensation is the deferral of taxes on the compensation until the date you actually receive the income.
Having a plan in place to minimize taxes on deferred compensation can be critical to helping you reap the benefits of this income source. The regulations governing when and how deferred compensation is taxed are complex and difficult to sort through.
