Course Description

Following the bursting of the tech bubble in 2001, employee stock options waned. With a resurgence in technology and other business sectors, rewarding employees with company stock ownership has returned.

Participants will come away knowing how to properly report their client’s various transactions and how to advise them on tax-advantaged strategies. Other topics covered include IRC definitions of types of employee stock options, Section 83(b) election, when to apply AMT, traps involving Employee Stock Purchase Plans, and ISO strategies.

  • Identify when and how to use a Section 83(b) election
