Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be able to assist you today.

If the stock was given as a form of compensation then the payment of the stock would be currently taxable unless there is a restriction of access to the stocks.

If or when the the taxpayer sells the stock in the future, the taxpayer will have a cost basis in the stock and the gains or loses will be calculated based off of the stock basis.
