Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Megan is not currently available (she's probably doing tax returns), so your Question was returned to the "Que".
I'm Steve G. & I think I can assist you.
Hi, I'm just typing my response. You are ?
What state are you in?
First of all, if the options & purchase were handled correctly the tax withheld would have been returned to the Company to be included in your W2. You should be able to check this out by looking at your y/end pay stub, & checking the year-to-date withholding. Or you could ask your HR/Payroll Department.
So, basically as far as the stock you sold (did you keep some & just sell what you need to pay the withholding tax?)
Your tax basis (cost) per share may (should be) already entered on the 1099B Statement & it should be the amount that you paid ordinary income tax on (your W2 compensation); there should be very little if any gain or loss on the shares you sold but they need to be reported on Form 8949 which is the Schedule D subschedule.
Does that cover your questions?
The Statement of taxable income is simply for your records.
Please remember to rate my response as that is the only way we receive credit for our work.
