Andrew Liazos was quoted on September 10 in Financial Week regarding the Internal Revenue Service rules governing deferred compensation. Tax lawyers have been pressuring the IRS and the Treasury Department to extend the year-end deadline from bringing documents into compliance with the rules. The IRS extended until December 2008, but the extension applies only to the documenting of compliance under 409A, not to the effective date of the new regulations, which begin January 1, 2008. "The rules of the road are still going to change at the end of this year, and this relief only has to do with documenting compliance," commented Mr. Liazos. "People might get put to sleep on this extension, and that would be a big mistake," he said.
