Few years ago , I received from my previous employer several hundred RSU, all managed by ETrade. since then all have already got Vested. I never sold neither bought any, in other words, I never had any concrete benefits out of this, though the stock price increased steadily every year.
I would like to sell these stocks and build (for the very long run...) a dividend growth portfolio, my questions are:
- Is selling Vested RSU is the same as selling a regular stock?
- I'm not a US citizen, my account is in ETrade and my stocks are of a US company, what pre arrangements I need to take to avoid tax issues?
