[[They are...but how are you going to get these "options" into a Roth IRA account. The company can NOT grant the options to your Roth IRA. They must be granted to a "natural person". And, once you receive the options, you can't "roll" them over into an IRA account of any type.]]

[[[[ hmmmmm.....but what if I put 2'gs of cash in my Roth, and then use that cash to
exercise my options. Wouldn't that work?]]

Nope...your Roth IRA account can't exercise. Only YOU can exercise.]]

I think this is where I have been having the problem. I didn't understand the difficulty of getting the stock granted via the options into the Roth.

I have been speaking with my accountant, broker, and the CFO, so I am sure between the four of us, I shouldn't end up in jail ;)

Thanks for all of your help.
