myStockOptions.com has updated its key educational content on financial and tax planning for stock compensation at year-end 2021 and will host a year-end webinar on Dec. 2
(PRUnderground) November 29th, 2021
Year-end is a key time for financial and tax planning among the millions of employees in the United States who have stock compensation (such as stock options and restricted stock units), participate in an employee stock purchase plan (ESPP), and/or have holdings of company shares. In 2021, year-end financial and tax planning can be tricky because of the uncertain potential for tax-law changes in 2022 or beyond.
To help, myStockOptions.com has updated its educational content on the major issues, decisions, and innovative financial-planning strategies for the end of 2021 and the start of 2022. This content is available in the website’s section Year-End Planning.
Why Year-End Planning Is Important For Stock Comp
At year-end, multi-year planning is especially valuable with stock compensation. “You can control the timing of stock sales and option exercises, and you know when restricted stock/RSUs will vest,” notes Bruce Brumberg, the Editor-in-Chief of myStockOptions.com.
Timely year-end guidance is particularly crucial for people who are considering option exercises or stock sales at the end of 2021. “Employees with equity grants and company shares should be aware of the 2021 and 2022 thresholds for higher tax rates on compensation income and capital gains, the phaseouts for various tax credits, and the Medicare surtax on investment income,” notes Mr. Brumberg. “They may want to consider keeping their income below those known thresholds, if possible. If you are convinced that your tax rates will be higher in 2022 and beyond, you may want to defer deductions into the future and accelerate income into 2021.”
