Hello,

I work for a US start-up company from which I have received Stock Options (not yet excercisable).

Does anyone know the best course of action to reduce tax burden in Canada ? No date for stocks to go public (at least 3 years or so as this is a very early startup).
I am afraid that when it does become public, I might get hit by a huge tax burden. Anyone knows the rules or point me to correct direction would be highly appreciated.

Thanks!

Typically there is no tax consequences for being granted employee stock options until you decide to exercise them. However I'm not sure if the company being American complicates the issue.

Are you currently a resident of Canada for tax purposes?
