This excerpt taken from the KMX DEF 14A filed Apr 27, 2007.
Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code generally disallows a deduction by publicly held corporations for compensation in excess of $1 million paid to the CEO or any of the four other most highly compensated officers. Certain performance-based compensation qualifies for an exemption under Section 162(m) and is not subject to the deduction limit. Compensation under the Bonus Plan and the Stock Incentive Plan qualifies for the exemption. The committee continues to monitor its executive compensation plans and policies with a view toward preserving the deductibility of executive compensation while maintaining the ability to attract and retain those executives necessary to assist us in reaching our goals and objectives.
