Question

I have a question about taxes on stock option sales. Where do I report nonqualifying stock option sales?

Answer

Regarding taxes on stock option sales, you’ll report the sale of nonqualifying stock option sales on Form 8949. This will transfer to Schedule D.

Your basis in the stock is the sum of:

  • What you paid to sell the option
  • Compensation included in your income when you sold the option
