Question
Can a citizen be forced to sell all his stock in one year?
Thank you!

Answer
This question apparently involves a private company as of it involved a public company, of course no one can force you to sell all ones stock at any time. As for private companies, the answer depends on the State law involved and the corporate bylaws of the company, each of which is different.

One would need to hire an attorney to actually review both the law in the particular state and the corporate bylaws of the company involved.

This is not something one can answer via a free internet inquiry .
