Mark the Calendar - 409A Deadline Looms

In addition to being the deadline for the 403(b) written plan requirement, December 31, 2008, is the deadline for nonqualified deferred compensation plans to be in written compliance with the final regulations under Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code. That means that the hard deadline for a compliant written plan is December 31, 2008. More information regarding Section 409A is available by searching for keyword "409A" at

For our clients who have not already done so and for any other company maintaining nonqualified deferred compensation plans who may wish to do so, we urge that you contact your Warner attorney or a member of our Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Group now. Again, the days grow short.

NOTICE. Although we would like to hear from you, we cannot represent you until we know that doing so will not create a conflict of interest. Also, we cannot treat unsolicited information as confidential. Accordingly, please do not send us any information about any matter that may involve you until you receive a written statement from us that we represent you.

By clicking the ‘ACCEPT’ button, you agree that we may review any information you transmit to us. You recognize that our review of your information, even if you submitted it in a good faith effort to retain us, and even if you consider it confidential, does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could and will be used against you.

Please click the ‘ACCEPT’ button if you understand and accept the foregoing statement and wish to proceed.
