Exemption Level

If shares were acquired after August 10, 1993, but before February 17, 2009, shares could be eligible for up to a 50% tax exclusion if the other QSBS criteria are met. If shares were acquired after February 17, 2009, but before September 27, 2010, shares could be eligible for up to a 75% tax exclusion if the other QSBS criteria are met. If shares were acquired after September 2010 shares could be eligible for up to a 100% tax exclusion if the other QSBS criteria are met.

Any individual owning stock purchased or received directly from the company could potentially be eligible for the QSBS capital gains tax exclusion or the Section 1045 gain rollover if the QSBS standards as per IRC Section 1202 were met at the time of issuance.

In order to assess whether stock issued previously may qualify, the Company would also have to have not taken actions that invalidate QSBS status such as a certain level of redemptions, and would have to satisfy the active business requirement.

If you think your shares may qualify, please contact us to evaluate your potential QSBS eligibility.
