Under current law, compensation paid to the employees of a tax-exempt organization is not subject to excess remuneration rules as it would be for a similar for-profit organization. Under the Tax Cut and Jobs Act, should certain employees of a tax-exempt organization receive compensation greater than $1,000,000 during the tax year from any combination of a tax-exempt organization and/or its related organizations, the organizations would be subject to an excise tax on that employee’s compensation in proportion to their payments to the employee. This rule applies to the five highest compensated employees of the tax-exempt organization with compensation greater than $1,000,000 for the taxable year, as well as any other employee with compensation greater than $1,000,000 who was formerly classified within the “five highest compensated employees” during any taxable year beginning after Dec. 31, 2016 (§4960 of the Code).
