The headline in the Greenhills Journal: “Council…proposes adding pensions to tax” needs clarification.  The Village is not adding pensions to the list of items to be taxed.  A definition of a pension is being added to our tax code.  The necessity for the addition of a definition is the result of recent court cases in the State of Ohio regarding a rare type of compensation plan entitled: Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan (SERP) which – per the Internal Revenue Service is a non-qualified deferred compensation plan – in which the local tax codes did not define “pension” adequately to make it clear if these plans are taxed or not taxed.  


Currently, Section 191.03(e) of the Greenhills Income Tax Code outlines the exceptions to taxing and this section of the Code is not being changed.  Included in the exceptions are welfare benefits, unemployment insurance benefits, pensions, social security benefits, and qualified retirement plans as defined by the Internal Revenue Service; and a list of 17 other categories that are not taxed.  Non-qualified deferred compensation plans are not currently listed in Greenhills’ exceptions and are taxed.   The addition of this definition clarifies the current status of our tax code as it regards non-qualified deferred compensation plans.


Once again, we are not changing what is being taxed in Greenhills; this is the addition of a clarifying definition only in Section 191.02 of the Greenhills Tax Code.
