Are you aware of these four basic facts about RSU and taxes?
- Your RSU /equity compensation award is considered ordinary income, taxable in the year your grant vests and/or shares are delivered to you.
- Your compensation is the fair market value (FMV) of the stock at the time of vesting, less the amount (if any) you paid for the shares, multiplied by the number of shares vested.
- If you are a salaried worker, your employer should include the value of your RSU award in your W-2.
- If you sell your stock, you may owe tax on any capital gains.
“At Towerpoint Wealth we strive to help each of our clients achieve, and then maintain, their financial independence.”
