RSUs have no taxable value until after they vest. When they vest, they are considered as W-2 income, which means you must pay taxes on them.
Because RSU vesting can trigger huge tax liabilities, it only makes sense for your employer to withhold a portion of the RSU value upon vesting in order to reduce a “nasty surprise” tax burden later on. Even if you want to hold onto your stock when it vests, the fact that you have to pay tax on stock whether or not you sell it means that you might have to sell some RSUs just to cover taxes!
We help you plan a strong tax strategy ahead of time to limit your tax liability and avoid any surprises come tax season.
