Stock options, restricted stock and RSUs: The basics and beyond




Event Description 


Stock options, restricted stock and restricted stock units (RSUs) are an important part of most executive pay packages, but few employees seem to understand the tax implications. Complex rules determine when and how stock awards translate into taxable income, and the consequences of a misstep can be severe. For example, vesting of one type of award may trigger income, while vesting does not for other awards.  


This webcast will use case studies to explore the basic tax treatment of nonqualified stock options, incentive stock options (ISOs), restricted stock and RSUs. We will also delve into more-complex issues, including Section 83(b) elections dividends from equity awards.
