When you receive employee stock options, you have a potential wealth magnification tool. But there’s a catch: Stock option plans are complicated and busy executives typically don’t have the time to properly manage them.

Request Report: 6 Stock Option Exercise Strategies

In this report, learn the basics of how stock options work and how to build a stock option exercise strategy that suits your long-term financial plan and potentially minimizes taxes.

Did you know…

  • There are two types of stock options, NQSOs and ISOs?
  • Typically, you do not have to exercise stock options when they vest?
  • Certain stock options are double taxed, when exercised and when shares are sold?
  • If you hold shares for over one year after the exercise date your tax liability may go down?
  • You must track each stock option unit with care because your basis may be different when determining your regular tax and AMT?
