We're about to launch a business and are trying to identify the best type of non-cash compensation to offer our certain founders and key employees. There seems to be many different types of stock options to offer but we're not sure what is the best type from a tax perspective.


Expert Mark Anderson's Answer:

It really depends upon the situation.  Issuing stock is probably the best.   I would talk to your CPA as it depends upon the company's tax situation.  I hope this answers your question.
