My question is this: Since I own that stock while I was still working can I assume that it is "Earned Income" and does that mean I can put it into a Roth IRA since I also paid tax when the options were exercised?Unfortunately, you can't contribute shares of stock to any IRA, Roth or traditional. IRA contributions can only be made in cash. You would have to sell the shares first before contributing to the IRA.foolazis
