§ 457(f) regs to "clean-up" § 409A

A key IRS attorney said last week that the § 457(f) regulations will be used as a vehicle to do some § 409A "clean-up." He also referred to the initial guidance being proposed rules. These comments seem to indicate that the regulations are moving forward, are broader than originally thought, and have a better chance of receiving earlier rather than later attention. The indication that they will come out in proposed form is positive news as it will not only give a chance for comment, but a longer period for easing into the new rules. From: bna.com
