Withhold-To-Cover
The use of restricted stock shares at vesting to pay the withholding tax. Instead of releasing to you all the shares at vesting, your company keeps an amount of shares equal to the tax needed for withholding. This compares to a sell-to-cover, in which all the shares are released and the broker then sells some shares to cover the tax-withholding amount. For details on the methods of restricted stock withholding, see a related FAQ.
