Equity compensation usually comes with two key dates: the grant date and the vest date. After your equity compensation is granted by your employer, there is typically a waiting period until you can exercise your stock-purchase option (the vest date). Whether you’ve just been granted equity compensation or you’re counting down the days until you can exercise your stock options, there are important financial and tax planning steps you should consider first. This article shares some ideas about grant and vest dates and how to make sure you’re prepared.
