Tax Advantages of an Employee Stock Ownership Plan

An employee stock ownership plan, commonly referred to as an ESOP, offers a range of benefits for sponsor companies, in addition to its owners and employees. As a qualified employee benefit plan, an ESOP is designed to provide retirement benefits to employees similar to that of a 401(k) plan. However, unlike a 401(k) plan where contributions are used to invest in a variety of outside stocks, bonds and mutual funds, an ESOP invests in the stock of its employer. As a result, employees become owners of their company, participating directly in its growth and success.
