    The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which President Trump signed into law on December 22, 2017, imposes an excise tax on certain tax-exempt organizations for compensation paid to covered employees in excess of $1 million per year and on certain excess parachute payments paid to covered employees that are contingent upon their separation from employment. The new tax will have a significant impact on the design and administration of executive compensation programs for taxable years beginning after December 31, 2017.
