Startup Compensation: Salary vs Common Stock vs Preferred Stock vs Options.
By Bill May 17, - pm. Joe, great summary. I agree on 3. It is very rare for someone to satisfy the holding periods and typically if they did, it is because they early exercised and would have satisfied the period anyway.

Thanks for the feedback, though of course I disagree. Hope that helps clear up any confusion. Either way, thanks for reading! Hi Steve, Thanks for taking time and sharing this info.
Going by your article I should have filed for an 83B election…the share value was very low. How does an 83b election work in the case of an option grant? My situation is I will have an option grant that vests over 4 years.
The first thing to distinguish between is vesting on an option grant, and vesting on a stock grant. So, the 83 b election applies when you have stock vesting on a schedule, but not when you have options vesting on a schedule. As a general matter, option grants and 83 b elections have nothing to do with each other. The important exception to this rule has to do with early exercise of option grants. Usually when you have that option, what you end up buying by exercising early is restricted stock.
That means that you buy this restricted stock, but if you quit or leave the company before your vesting date, the company pays you back for the stock and you get nothing. If you stay beyond the vesting date, the restricted stock converts to common stock. Steve, Please let my thanks as well. Have I got that right?
So, if you are a founder and just registered a company with no vesting period for your stocks, 83 b does not apply? At a minimum that means sending the document certified, but you can also send the IRS a self-addressed stamped envelope and ask them to date and time stamp the filing and send you a copy back as well.
I have an option grant that vests on a 4 year schedule with an initial 1 year vesting cliff, and I intend to immediately exercise the options as they vest i. Can I submit an 83 b election on the exercised options when they are exercised i. Please explain the math you use in example 1 and 2 for the 83b election column. If the founders paid cash for their shares in the amount of the par value, their taxes owed would presumably be zero; this is not highlighted in your article. Is there a reason for that?
I really like your clear graphics showing the consequences of the 83 b election. Is a stock option grant a property transfer? What if the fair market value is still equal to the option price when the option is exercised?
It would seem that no property had been transferred until the option was exercised. It is about 38 days since I got my grant, but the prevailing wisdom at my company is that the 30 days starts at the time I purchase the stock. Can you point me to any IRS document that spells this out clearly one way or the other for incentive stock option grants? I filed my 83 b several days ago which was within 30 days.
Are there anything I can do? A second question re: If someone has options that vest over time, and upon exercise of those options the Company retains right of first refusal, does that impact how the IRS would treat the shares received through exercising the option? If I exercise my option to purchase shares of a privately held company, do I have to pay the IRS anything at all if I cannot legally sell those shares without jumping through hoops? No need to pay every time the stock is valued?
I have an s corp ad my company receives a lot of restricted shares as payment for services from start up and early stage public companies. Can an S Corp file the 83 B Election? I am a hr manager for a company that offers restricted shares.
The election should be filed by mailing a signed election form by certified mail, return receipt requested to the IRS Service Center where the individual files his or her tax returns.
After understanding all three factors, research the comparable salary in a public company to determine if the offer is fair.
