Are stock options or "put warrents" taxable when exercised or granted? I became interested in this matter when it was reveled to me that Microsoft was paying it's employees in warrents that allowed them to purchase stock, Microsoft stock I presume, at a reduced price. I also was interested in whether or not the employee or Microsoft paid any Social Security taxes on the warrents. Anybody care to offer some advice? Thanks

Stock options and warrants are two entirely different issues for tax purposes. I would suggest that you visit the Fairmark tax site (http://www.fairmark.com) for the best discussion regarding options as compensation anywhere on the web. Once you spend a few hours at that site, you'll have a better understanding of options and how they work from both a compensation and tax standpoint.
