I received stock in the form of RSU, but at the time it was over $100 a share higher than it is now. Now I'm being taxed off of the original stock amount since it is looked at as a "cash bonus", but even selling the stock I can't raise the capital needed to cover that tax... View More

The answer to your question depends on the specific details of the contract and/or arrangement you have with your broker.

It depends on the nature of your agreement with the broker. I would recommend organizing the agreement (assuming there is one), and consulting with an attorney individually. An attorney will be able to review the specifics of the situation, and advise you as to your options moving forward.
