    TEAMSTERS APPLAUD INTRODUCTION OF LEGISLATION TO CLOSE EXECUTIVE PAY TAX LOOPHOLE
    01/12/17 - Teamsters Local 745
    ‘Stop Subsidizing Multimillion Dollar Corporate Bonuses Act’ Would Stop Exploitation of Tax Law that Allows Corporations to Deduct Excessive Executive Pay from Earnings (WASHINGTON) – The Teamsters Union fully supports the Stop Subsidizing Multimillion Dollar Corporate Bonuses Act as an important step toward ensuring corporations pay their fair share in taxes and curbing the trend of excessive executive pay. Introduced today by Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) and Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI), the Stop Subsidizing Multimillion Dollar Corporate Bonuses Act closes a loophole in the tax law that allows corporations to claim commission and performance-based executive compensation as a deduction. The current tax law restricts publicly traded corporations from deducting any employee’s base compensation over $1 million. However, the restriction does not include executive compensation received as a bonus.
