Legal Questions: Do you help founders with filing 83(b) elections?
Updated 06 March 2021
Yes, our platform generates 83(b) elections for founder's share purchases as well as any employees' and advisors' early exercise of stock options or receiving restricted share grants.
83(b) elections are only necessary for US taxpayers who are early exercising their stock; however, foreign founders may want to file an 83b if they believe they are likely to move to the US or become a tax resident there in the future.
