      Are you arguing the difference between short term (under a year) versus long term capital gains on vested stock options?

        You still have to report the actual sale of stocks on Schedule D - Capital Gains and Losses. For losses in 2008 I was allowed to spread my losses over 3 years for 2008, 2009 and 2010 ---  And in 2011 I had to file a return for unpaid taxes on unemployment benefits I received in 2010 --- the last year I ever had to file an income tax return. In 2912 I didn't have to file any tax return because I had ZERO income for all of 2011 --- and the same thing for 2012.

      •  Bud - you likely received ISOs (1+ / 0-)

        Stock options issued to employees that meet certain restriction are ISOs and can be structured in a way to have capital gains treatment if several steps are taken by the employees in the exercise and sale of their option securities. Executives are not eligible for ISOs.

        Executives receive Non-Qualified Stock Options which can NEVER BE STRUCTURED TO BE TAXED AT CAPITAL GAINS RATES. That's just a fact and I wish you would stop writing in your diaries that corporate executives are receiving stock option income taxed at capital gains rates. That's a false statement and you have heard from multiple members here who are tax experts on this issue many times. PLEASE STOP..
