Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation

 Aronoff Center

Maximizing the use of employee benefits plans is often the most important – and most complicated – aspect of tax planning for individual entrepreneurs and privately-owned businesses.  We design and assist with compliance requirements for qualified retirement plans, welfare benefits plans, and executive compensation arrangements that maximize the benefits available for owners and key employees.  We also represent clients before the IRS in plan audits, determination letter proceedings, and voluntary correction programs.  Our practice includes design and implementation of benefit programs in the following areas:

  • Profit sharing and 401(k) plans
  • Defined benefit and cash balance plans
  • ESOPs
  • Section 403(b) and 457 plans
  • Non-qualified deferred compensation plans and executive employment agreements
  • Equity-based compensation arrangements
  • Cafeteria plans and Medical Expense Reimbursement Arrangements
  • ERISA, COBRA, and HIPAA compliance
