Yale Presents Investment Risk and The Tax Benefit of Deferred Compensation Today at Florida State

Ethan Yale (Georgetown) presents Investment Risk and The Tax Benefit of Deferred Compensation at Florida State today as part of its Faculty Enrichment Series.  Here is the abstract:

Deferred compensation is thought to generate considerable tax savings compared to current compensation in certain circumstances. The standard model used to support this conclusion does not consider investment risk and therefore overstates the tax benefit of deferred compensation significantly. This paper describes three alternative, risk-neutral approaches to measuring the tax benefit of deferred compensation. Each of these approaches avoids misclassifying increases in expected value attributable to increases in investment risk as a tax preference.

Brian Galle (Florida State) is the host.
