I have options to purchase stock in a S Corp. Is there any tax advantage to exercising those options at least one year prior to a sale of the company for capital gains tax purposes or does concept not apply to the sale of a private company?

  • May be relevant: If the company is sold, would you retain your shares or would the buyer also buy up all existing shares?

    For the question my assumption was the the buyer would buy up all existing shares

  • OK, just making sure. (Because you might not owe any capital gains tax otherwise at the time of sale.)
