Stock option backdating has erupted into a major corporate scandal, involving potentially hundreds of publicly-held companies, and may even ensnare Apple's icon, Steve Jobs.

While the focus of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") centers on improper accounting practices and disclosures, thereby violating securities laws, a major yet little explored consequence to the scandal involves potentially onerous taxes on those who received these options.

,000 shares at a share for a period of 5 years.

It turns out that Jobs did, indeed, receive backdated options—just not at his own direction. 18, 2001, when the stock stood at .01, the company gave Jobs a monster 7.5-million-share options grant dated Oct. By doing so, the company gave Jobs million in compensation for which it did not account properly. It also pretended the options grant was approved at a special board meeting, when no such meeting occurred. He received a massive grant that was approved at a phantom board meeting, though he didn't know about the phony meeting.

Dozens of companies – including United Health Group, Comverse Technology, Vitesse Semiconductor and Affiliated Computer Services – have caught the eye of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice for the timing of their stock option grants.

The question: did these companies backdate options grants – and falsify records – to make them more lucrative for their top employees?

In some cases, the date of exercise, rather than the date of grant, was changed to an earlier date to convert ordinary income into capital gains.

In general, companies engaging in a classic backdating transaction chose a date when the stock price was at a low point and chose that favorable date as the grant date.

That exercise price, or strike price, usually takes one of three forms: the closing price on the day of the grant; an average of the highs and lows of the day; or the closing price from the previous day.

The lower the strike price, the greater the potential for making money when exercising the options.

Or did a lot of CEOs just have amazingly good luck?
