    The Internal Revenue Code allows certain state and local governments and non-governmental organizations a tax exemption for plans that defer compensation.  This exemption is under section 457.  Individuals covered by these plans can chose to defer income to specified limits and thus defer income tax on their contribution and subsequent earnings until the time of retirement.
