Basics: Grants

How will I know which type of option I have been granted?
Look at your grant agreement. It should clearly state whether the grant is a nonqualified stock option or an incentive stock option. (If the grant agreement is not clear on this point, check with the person at your company who is responsible for administering the stock-option plan.)
