Preventing Tax-Return Mistakes with Stock Comp and Stock Sales

Feb. 14, 2024
2:00 p.m. - 3:40 p.m. ET

The 2024 tax season brings extensive risk for costly mistakes with tax returns involving stock compensation, including cost-basis reporting for stock sales. The uneven and volatile markets of the past year, economic uncertainty, and growing IRS audit resources make the need for expert tax guidance more important than ever.

With actionable takeaways and peer-led insights, our webinar on tax-return topics for stock comp will sharpen your knowledge of the reporting for stock options, restricted stock/RSUs, ESPPs, and sales of company shares.

A panel of three experienced tax experts (two CPAs and an Enrolled Agent) will explain how to avoid common mistakes that can lead to tax overpayments or unwanted IRS attention. Plus, get special insights from case studies on how to use information in tax returns to create better financial plans.

This 100-minute event will be moderated by Bruce Brumberg (JD), editor-in-chief and co-founder of myStockOptions and a contributor.

"The knowledge I gained from myStockOptions both as a premium member and from your webinars has made me stand out at work."
—Vincent Leonardo (EA), Tax Analyst, Intuit
