Corporate Tax Executive Compensation in 2017 – The Real Story

Kat Jennings, CEO

When you spend years acquiring compensation data on corporate tax executives you learn a lot! TaxConnections conducts a compensation study every two years given the enormity of the project. This requires an extraordinary amount of effort to compile information, match up technical responsibilities for specialized tax roles, organize the information by geographical regions, and make sense of a wide range of equity programs. We conduct compensation studies in order to help corporate management teams attract the tax talent they need. These studies are not money-makers given the great deal of time it takes to prepare them. It is difficult to obtain salary information as people must trust you in order to get the real story! We must also organize it in a fashion that makes sense when you step out of the realm of base plus bonus and into the realm of equity and perks which are as vast as the sea. What you need to know is the real story behind corporate tax compensation if you want to successfully retain and keep the very best tax talent on the market..

Message To President Trump From A Concerned Retired Tax Executive

TaxConnections Members provide valuable insight into tax reform proposals. As these new tax proposals make their way through the House and the Senate, it is important to learn from highly experienced tax experts who have their eyes on the implications of any changes proposed or made.

Tax professionals are the people you can trust who understand these tax proposals. There is no better expert to look to than a retired tax expert like Do Amirian who recently sent me a copy of his letter to President Trump regarding Tax Reform Per House Bill (62% Increase for the elderly).  Retired tax executives are people who have the time and experience to see through the consequences of any new tax proposals. We need to learn from years of tax expertise!

Kat Jennings, TaxConnections CEO

——————————————————————————————————

Honorable President Trump,

The House will have significant adverse tax impact on the elderly, with significant medical expenses because of the elimination of the medical expense deduction.

For example, I, and my spouse Violet, will experience a federal tax increase of 62% under the House bill because of the elimination of the medical expense deduction.

Such a tax increase, an incredible 62%, is unconscionable under any standard of fairness.

Mr. President, please retain this critical deduction for the elderly, who count in the tens of millions of individuals.

Respectfully and success with your Administration,

Dro Amirian

Retired Corporate Tax Executive

Los Angeles, California
