Community Corner Expands Tax-Return Guidance to Help the Millions of US Taxpayers Who Have Equity Compensation

BROOKLINE, Mass., March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Tax reform has brought the topic of taxes to the forefront of public attention in the United States and has added more confusion to the already complex arena of federal taxation. For the millions of employees at US companies who have equity compensation and shares of their companies' stock, every tax-return season raises worries about errors that can lead to overpaid tax, underreported income, IRS penalties, or even an IRS audit. The 2018 tax season presents more than the usual potential for confusion, uncertainty, and expensive mistakes in IRS filings for taxpayers who have income from equity compensation.

To help these employees and their tax advisors, the Tax Center at offers clear, reliable information, guidance, and illustrations explaining how to report 2017 stock sales on federal tax returns for 2017 filed in 2018. Additionally, while the tax-reform legislation that took effect in 2018 does not affect 2017 tax returns, a special FAQ at explains its future impact on tax planning.

"The tax reporting for stock compensation is complex," emphasizes Bruce Brumberg, Editor-in-Chief of "Even accountants and tax advisors sometimes make mistakes. Our goal is to help employees and their financial or tax advisors realize the full potential of equity compensation by educating them about tax rules and helping them prevent costly errors. The last thing taxpayers want is to pay too much tax or incur IRS penalties that take yet more money out of their pockets."
