Understanding capital gains and losses for stock plan transactions (RSU and ESPP)

event access_time


This presentation showcases why calculations for stock plan transactions may not always be straightforward and could require a participant to refer to more than just the Form 1099-B for cost basis information. There will be an opportunity for questions, as well as discussion about additional information that might be needed for filing taxes (and where to find it).
