for Payroll:

Optional pre taxable savings program to supplement retirement income, which is personally geared toward individual employee's needs.  The deferred compensation program allows employees to put aside a portion of their earnings each pay period into an account for their retirement and reduce the amount that is taxable now, postponing federal income taxes until retirement which is then taxable at a lower rate.  Another advantage is that the deferred compensation program defers taxes on income that an employee’s account earns over the course of employment years, which is not available in a conventional passbook savings account.  The Town of Jupiter currently has two deferred compensation plans from which to choose in accordance with Section 457 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
