Taking Stock of Your Options

Stocks and security options are commonly perceived to be among the most difficult and challenging taxable benefits to assess and understand.
The following topics and issues will be explored during the session:

  • What is a stock option?
  • Types of stock option plans such as share purchase plans, stock bonus plans, and stock options
  • When is the stock option benefit brought into income?
  • When does Income Tax Actsection 7 not apply? (e.g., phantom stock plans, stock appreciation plans.)
  • Stock options exercised by a former employee.
  • Employee paragraph 110 (1) (d) deductions
  • CRA and Revenu QuĂ©bec (RQ) withholding requirements
  • Year-end reporting of the benefit
  • How does the treatment of stock and security options differ with the RQ?
