Mon E. Bags, Chief Executive Officer of Earns A Lot Enterprises, received total compensation of $2,500,000.00 in 2017. The compensation included a base salary of $750,000, commission income of $1,250,000 and a performance bonus of $500,000. Mr. Bags’ compensation placed him in the top 25% of all chief executive’s in the industry.
Earns A Lot is located in State X. While the national economy has experienced an economic slowdown, State X has a strong and vibrant economy. Mr. Bags has been the chief executive officer for five years.
Earns A Lot, which has long had a reputation for paying very competitive salaries, recruited Mr. Bags from its chief rival, Wanna Be Industries. When Mr. Bags became the chief executive of Wanna Be, the company was on the verge of liquidation. Within five years, Mr. Bags took Wanna Be from the steps of oblivion to the top of the industry.
While Earns A Lot has a solid reputation of consistent top tier performance, it has long believed there was room for substantial growth and so hired Mr. Bags. Indeed, under Mr. Bags’ leadership, Earns A Lot has seen gross revenues grow by over 20% per year. Nonetheless, Earns A Lot is concerned whether the company will be able to deduct Mr. Bags’ 2017 compensation.
Will Earns A Lot be able to deduct Mr. Bags’ 2017 compensation?
