IRS Issues Guidance on Income Tax Aspects of Transfer of Stock Option in Divorce
Deloitte & ToucheLink to more items from this source
May 30, 2002
Excerpt: Basically, IRS is taking the position that there are no immediate tax, withholding, or reporting consequences when employees transfer their interests in nonstatutory stock options and nonqualified deferred compensation to their former spouses incident to a divorce. However, the employee's former spouse (the 'transferee') must recognize income when he/she exercises the options and/or when the deferred compensation is paid or made available to him/her.
