Content On Year-End Planning At myStockOptions.com Helps Employees And Executives Make Smarter Financial And Tax Decisions

Using clear English, the fully up-to-date section Year-End Planning on myStockOptions.com educates employees about complex year-end financial and tax decisions.

Brookline, MA, December 18, 2006 - The end of each year raises the need for careful and sometimes complex financial and tax planning. myStockOptions.com, the top online resource of educational content on stock compensation, publishes fully updated articles and FAQs on year-end planning for employees and executives with company stock grants.

myStockOptions.com conveniently gathers this content in its section Financial Planning: Year-End Planning. Written by experts in financial planning and taxation, the articles, detailed FAQs, and tax guides cover:

  • fundamental concepts of year-end planning, including those pertaining to gifts of stock
  • special issues for nonqualified stock options and restricted stock
  • strategies for avoiding or minimizing the alternative minimum tax (AMT) with incentive stock options (ISOs)
  • basic tactics for netting capital gains against short-term capital losses for stock sales

New Tax Law Will Change Year-End Picture For Many

Additionally, myStockOptions.com has already made substantial additions and updates for the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 (along with other tax laws enacted in 2006). Passed by Congress on December 9, 2006, this wide-ranging tax bill has important provisions that affect AMT credits, and therefore can change the year-end planning picture for employees and executives with ISOs. This added and updated content appears in Year-End Planning and also in the section ISOs: AMT Advanced.

"The end of the year is a crucial time for making decisions about your financial goals and overall financial picture," observes Bruce Brumberg, Editor-in-Chief of myStockOptions.com. "Our goal is to help employees with stock pay realize the full potential of their grants by educating them about tax rules and helping them prevent mistakes."
