The Safe Harbor Sample Clauses

The Safe Harbor. The Code provides a "safe harbor" of 300% of the executive's base amount (i.e., the excess parachute payment rules do not apply if the aggregate amount of parachute payments is less than three times the executive's base amount). If, however, the parachute payments equal or exceed the safe harbor amount, the entire excess over the base amount will be subject to the excise tax and disallowance of deduction. For example, if an executive has a base amount of $100,000, parachute payments of up to $299,999 will not be subject to the excise tax or the disallowance of deduction, but a parachute payment of $300,000 (only $1 more) will be subject to those rules to the extent of $200,000 (the excess of the parachute payments over the executive's safe harbor). Note that because of this treatment, an individual entitled to parachute payments only slightly in excess of his or her safe harbor amount may be in a better after-tax position if his or her payments are automatically reduced (or "capped") to the safe harbor amount. Such an individual is said to be in the "valley." In the above example, the individual avoids an excise tax of $40,000 (20% of the $200,000 excess parachute payment) merely by having his or her payments reduced by $1.

  • Safe Harbor The recipient government will then compare the reporting year’s actual tax revenue to the baseline. If actual tax revenue is greater than the baseline, Treasury will deem the recipient government not to have any recognized net reduction for the reporting year, and therefore to be in a safe harbor and outside the ambit of the offset provision. This approach is consistent with the ARPA, which contemplates recoupment of Fiscal Recovery Funds only in the event that such funds are used to offset a reduction in net tax revenue. If net tax revenue has not been reduced, this provision does not apply. In the event that actual tax revenue is above the baseline, the organic revenue growth that has occurred, plus any other revenue-raising changes, by definition must have been enough to offset the in-year costs of the covered changes.

  • Deferral Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company shall furnish to Holders requesting registration pursuant to this Section 2.3, a certificate signed by the President or Chief Executive Officer of the Company stating that in the good faith judgment of the Board, it would be materially detrimental to the Company and its shareholders for such registration statement to be filed at such time, then the Company shall have the right to defer such filing for a period of not more than ninety (90) days after receipt of the request of the Initiating Holders; provided, however, that the Company may not utilize this right more than once in any twelve (12) month period; provided further, that the Company shall not register any other of its shares during such twelve (12) month period.

  • Elective Deferrals A Participant may enter into a Salary Savings Agreement with the Employer authorizing the Employer to withhold a portion of such Participant's Compensation not to exceed $7,000 per calendar year as adjusted under Code Section 415(d) or, if lesser, the percentage of Compensation specified in the Adoption Agreement and to deposit such amount to the Plan. No Participant shall be permitted to have Elective Deferrals made under this Plan or any other qualified plan maintained by the Employer, during any taxable year, in excess of the dollar limitation contained in Code Section 402(g) in effect at the beginning of such taxable year. Thus, the $7,000 limit may be reduced if a Participant contributes pre-tax contributions to qualified plans of this or other Employers. Any such contribution shall be credited to the Employee's Salary Savings Account. Unless otherwise specified in the Adoption Agreement, a Participant may amend his or her Salary Savings Agreement to increase, decrease or terminate the percentage upon 30 days written notice to the Employer. If a Participant terminates his or her agreement, such Participant shall not be permitted to put a new Salary Savings Agreement into effect until the first pay period in the next Plan Year, unless otherwise stated in the Adoption Agreement. The Employer may also amend or terminate said agreement on written notice to the Participant. If a Participant has not authorized the Employer to withhold at the maximum rate and desires to increase the total withheld for a Plan Year, such Participant may authorize the Employer upon 30 days notice to withhold a supplemental amount up to 100% of his or her Compensation for one or more pay periods. In no event may the sum of the amounts withheld under the Salary Savings Agreement plus the supplemental withholding exceed 25% of a Participant's Compensation for a Plan Year. Elective Deferrals shall be deposited in the Trust no later than the date described in Section 2510.3-102 of the Department of Labor Regulations.

Upon the vesting of RSUs that have been so deferred, the applicable number of Deferred Shares shall be credited to a bookkeeping account established on the Participant’s behalf (the “Account”). Subject to Section 5 hereof, the number of shares of Common Stock equal to the number of Deferred Shares credited to the Participant’s Account shall be distributed to the Participant in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Plan and the other applicable written plans or procedures of the Company, consistent with the requirements of Section 409A of the Code.

  • Deferral of Compensation The Company shall implement deferral arrangements, reasonably acceptable to Executive and the Company, permitting Executive to elect to defer receipt, pursuant to written deferral election terms and forms (the "Deferral Election Forms"), of all or a specified portion of (i) his annual Base Salary and annual incentive compensation under Sections 4 and 5, (ii) long term incentive compensation under Section 6 and (iii) shares acquired upon exercise of options to purchase Company common stock that are acquired in an exercise in which Executive pays the exercise price by the surrender of previously acquired shares, to the extent of the net additional shares otherwise issuable to Executive in such exercise; provided, however, that such deferrals shall not reduce Executive's total cash compensation in any calendar year below the sum of (i) the FICA maximum taxable wage base plus (ii) the amount needed, on an after-tax basis, to enable Executive to pay the 1.45% medicare tax imposed on his wages in excess of such FICA maximum taxable wage base. In accordance with such duly executed Deferral Election Forms, the Company shall credit to a bookkeeping account (the "Deferred Compensation Account") maintained for Executive on the respective payment date or dates, amounts equal to the compensation subject to deferral, such credits to be denominated in cash if the compensation would have been paid in cash but for the deferral or in shares if the compensation would have been paid in shares but for the deferral. An amount of cash equal in value to all cash-denominated amounts credited to Executive's account and a number of shares of Company common stock equal to the number of shares credited to Executive's account pursuant to this Section 7(b) shall be transferred as soon as practicable following such crediting by the Company to, and shall be held and invested by, an independent Except as otherwise provided under Section 10, in the event of Executive's termination of employment with the Company or as otherwise determined by the Committee in the event of hardship on the part of Executive, upon such date(s) or event(s) set forth in the Deferral Election Forms (including forms filed after deferral but before settlement in which Executive may elect to further defer settlement), the Company shall promptly pay to Executive cash equal to the value of the assets then credited to Executive's deferral accounts, less applicable withholding taxes, and such distribution shall be deemed to fully settle such accounts; provided, however, that the Company may instead settle such accounts by directing the Trustee to distribute Company common stock and/or other assets of the "rabbi trust." The Company and Executive agree that compensation deferred pursuant to this Section 7(b) shall be fully vested and nonforfeitable; however, Executive acknowledges that his rights to the deferred compensation provided for in this Section 7(b) shall be no greater than those of a general unsecured creditor of the Company, and that such rights may not be pledged, collateralized, encumbered, hypothecated, or liable for or subject to any lien, obligation, or liability of Executive, or be assignable or transferable by Executive, otherwise than by will or the laws of descent and distribution, provided that Executive may designate one or more beneficiaries to receive any payment of such amounts in the event of his death.
