Post-Election Year-End Financial Planning: myStockOptions Provides Updated Guidance

Year-end is a key time for financial and tax planning by employees who have stock compensation. myStockOptions provides crucial guidance and resources for the end of 2020.

(PRUnderground) December 2nd, 2020

Year-end is a key time for financial and tax planning, especially for the millions of employees who have stock compensation or holdings of company shares. However, the 2020 election presents uncertainty about the future of tax laws that affect financial- and tax-planning strategies.

To help, provides education and guidance on major issues, choices, and innovative financial-planning strategies for the end of 2020 and the start of 2021. This content is available in the website’s section Year-End Planning and through content licensing.

Financial planning at year-end 2020 is more important than ever for employees with equity compensation who are:

– evaluating whether to exercise stock options
– planning to sell shares acquired from restricted stock, restricted stock units, or an employee stock purchase plan (ESPP)
– donating company stock to charities

Multi-year planning for income from stock compensation and stock sales is especially crucial. “You can control the timing of stock sales and option exercises, and you know when restricted stock/RSUs will vest,” observes Bruce Brumberg, the Editor-in-Chief of “Employees with equity grants, employee stock purchase plans, and company shares should be aware of the 2020 and 2021 thresholds for higher tax rates on compensation income and capital gains, the additional Medicare tax on compensation income, and the Medicare surtax on investment income.”

Mr. Brumberg adds: “The standard year-end-planning strategy is to defer income into the next year and accelerate deductions into the current year. But tax planning for year-end 2020 could be different, depending on the outlook for tax legislation in 2021.” To help, a new article at myStockOptions presents insights from financial advisors and tax pros on ways to think about tax strategies after the 2020 election: Post-Election Year-End Planning: What Financial Advisors And Tax Pros Are Advising Clients About Uncertain Tax Changes.
