New IRS Form 3921 For Incentive Stock Options: 3921 Software Makes it Easy to File

An Incentive Stock Option (ISO) is a way for corporations to attract and retain employees by granting the employee the right to purchase a certain number of shares of stock at a pre-established price.  The 2006 Tax Relief and Health Care Act (TRHCA) mandated that starting in 2011, a corporation must file an IRS Tax Form 3921 each time it transfers stock to an employee who has exercised an incentive stock option, with an exception made for employees who are non-resident aliens.  3921 software at the site 1099fire.com makes it easy to file IRS Tax Form 3921 by paper or electronically. Service bureau and mail house solutions are also available.

IRS Form 3921 includes such information as the date the option was granted, the date the employee exercised the option, the number of shares of stock transferred to the employee, the fair market value (FMV) of the stock when the option was exercised, and the exercise price of the stock. There is a space for the mailing address and federal identification number (FIN) of both the transferor and the employee, and for the name, address and EIN of the corporation issuing the stock, if other than the transferor.

Paper Filing, Electronic filing, Service Bureau…

Form 3921 can be filed by paper or electronically to the IRS. “Our 3921 software makes it easy to import from Excel, print and electronically filing IRS Form 3921 quickly and easily”, said Erich J.
