Great site! I stumbled upon it from a Google search.
I work for a startup company. I received 60% of last year’s bonus in cash and 40% as stock grants. My employer estimated the value of the shares as $1 per share.

Assuming the grant was fully vested, it is taxable. Your employer should include the value of the grant on your W-2 form as part of your wages.
