I read the FAQ on your website and thanks for the valuable information.
How important is it to file the 83(b) within 30 days of purchasing the options? What are the consequences of late filing, if any, especially when there is not immediate tax consequences (the price paid and the fair market value are the same)?

In order to be effective, the Section 83(b) election must be filed on time, even if there are no immediate tax consequences. There is no procedure or rule for a late election.
