Executive Stock Options, Restricted Shares and Restricted Stock Units — What’s Best for You

  • ISOs — Incentive stock options, qualified under the tax code,
  • Non-quals — Non-qualified stock options,
  • Restricted Stock — where you are actually issued shares and might want to make a tax election to take unvested shares into income, and
  • RSUs Restricted Stock Units, where stock is also issued and taxed as it vests.
