Maximizing Employer Stock Options

On this edition of Lifetime Income, Paul Horn and Chris Preitauer discuss the benefits of employee stock options and how to best benefit from those options. Among the details discussed are tax benefits, discounted stock, the vesting period, Restricted Stock Units (RSU's), Incentizized Stock Options (ISO's), and the use of an 83(b) election. While this topic can often be a real headache, consider this episode the "headache aspirin" for stock options.
