Hi, I have an offer from nvidia. They are offering me joining and anniversary bonus. Can I ask one of them to be espp pre-tax? Or even just stocks?

    No. Don’t ask. It will make you look stupid since there’s no such thing as pretax espp, and taking stock instead would be taxable just like cash.

      Dude didn't ask if he would look stupid. He definitely would look stupid if he asked.

    How would it ever be done pre-tax?

    You can always ask the question. That doesn't mean it would happen.

    Maybe you should ask (blind) the likelihood of them adhering to your request.

    Very unlikely nvidia will do that. Also consider 25K limit on annual espp purchase.

    Nope, I don't think you can

    ESPP is not compensation. It is a subscription program that allows you to buy stock at a discounted price.

    No. It’s a public company. Doesn’t work like that
