Requirements and Opportunities in Incentive Stock Option Taxation

Gain a better understanding of the proper tax treatment of incentive stock options.

This topic will involve a description of the tax consequences to the employer and the employee of Incentive Stock Options (ISOs) under various scenarios. It will also explore the various technical requirements for ISOs with respect to both the ISO Plan and the ISO Award Agreement, as well as the need for shareholder approval. Moreover, we will review permissive provisions for ISOs, including, but not limited to, cashless exercises, time-based and performance-based vesting, change of control vesting, and granting ISOs in tandem with stock appreciation rights. Finally, we will explore alternatives for dealing with ISOs between the signing and closing of a corporate transaction.
