Hi Alix, In general stock options you receive as compensation (incentive stock option) are not going to create tax liability when received. Exercising the option does not in itself cause a taxable event, but generally people sell stock upon exercising the option or for the purpose of exercising the option. The gain from this sale is taxable. You can get specific details in IRS publication 525.
