Using VEBAs For Employer-Owners | LifeHealthPro

Imagine a program that allows large, flexible, tax-deductible contributions to accumulate and compound on a tax-deferred basis. Distributions are received at any age without penalties, regardless of the amount. Assets are protected from creditors' claims. There are income and estate tax-free survivor benefits. The program is fully insured and, by a favorable Letter of Determination, the Internal Revenue Service has granted a tax exemption to the Section 501(c)(9) trust.
The program also can acquire tax-deductible life insurance, provide funds to pay estate taxes and provide tax-deductible educational benefits for children.
These are some of the benefits of a Voluntary Employees' Beneficiary Association (VEBA). VEBAs are tax-exempt trusts (or nonprofit corporations) that are described in Section 501(c)(9) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. They require a letter of determination from the IRS granting tax exempt trust status. If the statutory requirements are met and the IRS issues a favorable Letter Of Determination, then, in general, the qualified cost of contributions by an employer to the VEBA that are ordinary and necessary expenses, are deductible for federal income tax purposes.
