Legal Questions: Do you help founders with filing 83(b) elections?

Yes, our platform will automatically generate 83(b) elections for any share purchases made by the company's founders, as well as for the early exercise of stock options by employees and advisors, or for the receipt of restricted share grants. Additionally, when founders buy their own founder shares, we file 83(b) elections on their behalf.

83(b) elections are only required for US taxpayers who are early exercising their stock. However, foreign founders may want to file an 83b if they believe it is likely that they will move to the US or become a tax resident there in the future.
