WHAT'S ON TAP IN 2016 AT THE SEC AND FASB IN EQUITY COMPENSATION.  The SEC and FASB spent much of 2015 finalizing and creating proposals that affect the equity compensation. We now have final guidance from the SEC on the CEO pay ratio disclosure. Soon, we will have final guidance on clawbacks and pay for performance. And, after a decade, ASC 718 is about to be revised in some appealing ways.

Description:

This tax season has more potential than ever for confusion, uncertainty, and expensive mistakes with all the changes in the past few years in IRS forms and requirements. These include making sense of Form 1099-B from the broker, reporting stock sales on tax return forms 8949 and Schedule D, plus changes in cost basis reporting starting with stock sales made in 2014. The webinar will help you understand the changes and communicate with employees to help them prevent mistakes in reporting stock sales from equity compensation.

By attending this webinar session, you will learn about:

  *   What employees need to know about the 1099-B

  *   Pitfalls that may cause unwanted IRS attention

  *   Tax law changes recently adopted that apply to stock compensation
