Stock Options

Employee stock options are options your employer grants you. Two basic types are:

  • Qualified (statutory) stock options
  • Nonqualified (nonstatutory) stock options

Two groups of qualified stock options — also known as statutory stock options — are:

  • Incentive stock options (ISOs)
  • Options granted under an employee stock purchase plan

All other employee stock options are nonqualified stock options. These are also known as nonstatutory stock options.
