How to File Taxes With Restricted Stock Units (RSUs)

Each year during the tax preparation process, one of the most common questions we get is how to file taxes with restricted stock units (RSUs).


RSUs are a form of compensation issued by an employer to an employee in the form of company shares. Restricted Stock Units generally incur both ordinary income tax and capital gains taxes.


It is important to understand what taxable events have occurred and what documents you need to collect for proper reporting so that the necessary adjustments can be made to avoid overpaying your taxes.
