Boston, MA (PRUnderground) November 28th, 2022

Year-end is a key time for financial and tax planning among the millions of employees in the United States who have stock compensation (such as stock options and restricted stock units), participate in an employee stock purchase plan (ESPP), and/or have holdings of company shares. In 2022, year-end financial and tax planning can be tricky because of ongoing volatile stock prices and economic uncertainty.

To help, has updated its education and guidance on the major issues, decisions, and innovative financial-planning strategies for the end of 2022 and the start of 2023. This content is available in the website’s section Financial Planning: Year-End.

Why Year-End Planning Is Important For Stock Comp

At year-end, multi-year planning is especially valuable with stock compensation. “You can control the timing of stock sales and option exercises, and you know when restricted stock/RSUs will vest,” according to Bruce Brumberg, the Editor-in-Chief of

Timely year-end guidance is particularly crucial for people who are considering option exercises or stock sales at the end of 2022. “Employees with equity grants and company shares should be aware of the 2022 and 2023 thresholds for higher tax rates on compensation income and capital gains, the phaseouts for various tax credits, and the Medicare surtax on investment income,” Mr. Brumberg notes. “They may want to consider keeping their income below those known thresholds, when possible. If they are convinced their tax rates will be higher in 2023 and beyond, they may want to defer deductions into the future and accelerate income into 2022.”

Employees who seek tax-loss harvesting by selling company stock that has depreciated since acquisition also need to be aware of the rules on wash sales, warns Mr. Brumberg. “Under IRS rules, the purchase of new shares within 30 days of the sale can result in a forced deferral of that capital loss until a future year,” he explains. “A purchase can include an RSU vesting, stock option exercise, or ESPP purchase.”
