Tax Consequences of Stock Options: ISOs, NSOs, ESPPs, and RSUs
Note: CLE credit is not offered on this program
A live 110-minute CPE webinar with interactive Q&A
This course will discuss the tax implications of incentive stock options (ISOs), non-qualified stock options, ESPPs, and restricted stock units (RSUs). Compensating employees with stock allows them to purchase company stock and to share in the success and appreciation of the company. The type of incentive determines when, how, and whether a stock is taxed, either along the way or at the sale of the stock. So, a tax practitioner must understand the differences between these types of plans. The panel will explain how and when each type is taxed, the best tax strategies for each award type.
- Incentive stock options
- Non-qualified stock options
- ESPPs, qualified and not
- Other stock plans
- Other considerations in light of the current economy
The panel will review these and other important issues:
- Recognizing ISOs, NSOs, ESPPs, and RSUs
- Discerning taxation timing and rate differences between the most common stock plans
- What documentation is needed to properly report stock transactions
- Considerations for non-U.S. employees
- Equity compensation and remote workers
- Issues to consider when granting stock options to PEO or EOR employees
- How and when taxpayers can garner benefits of repricing stock options
