    Certain amount stock options are treated as ordinary compensation income.  THe CG rate kicks in only when stock options are converted to actual stock, and the stock sold after being held long term.

    •  That was not my understanding (0+ / 0-)

      about Stock options.

      they are taxed as capital gains, and yes only after they are exercise.

      which is my broader point, and what Conservatives Don't seem to get that the top marginal tax rate is paid from what ever is left AFTER all your business expenses are met.

      if you keep the money in your business, and use it to grow, your not paying taxes on that
