Strange title, hey!
Well, have you ever watched sheep as they are lead into being shawn? Following the one in front, not deviating. Sheep are fantastic at doing what other sheep around them are doing.
What does this have to do with you as a Microsoft Professional?
Are you doing the same thing when it comes to your tax bill each year? Your Microsoft ESPP is fantastic, but the tax that you seem to incur each year from it does hurt.
You might ask around at work; what are you doing about your tax bill? Did you pay tax again last year? Was the Microsoft shares wasn’t it?
But that is where the conversation ends.
Luke was the same. For years he simply paid his tax bill that he received at the end of the year. Some years his Accountant even made him go on something called an installment plan.He asked some of his friends at work what they did. They said pretty much what he was doing.
Then one day, he spoke to Amy. Amy had been with Microsoft for the same amount of time as Luke. About a year ago, Amy had met a Financial Adviser who worked just with Microsoft Professionals.
This adviser had helped put all of her Microsoft shares into one easy to read document. This document listed all of the award shares, the price purchased, current price and even the possible gain and tax.
When Amy showed this document to Luke he was blown away.
“And the strategies we have worked on together save tax for me each year. Its great”.
