|Subject: Tax Liability on Employee Stock Options...HELP||Date: 6/14/2001 9:55 PM|

On July 15th, 50% of my unvested stock will vest for $0.01 per share --due to a merger with another company.
On that day I will have to pay for the "income" Tax on these share at the days share price. I have two options; pay with a check or pay with shares of the vested stock.
My Question is:
Can I avoid paying this "income" tax by taking a loss on another stock that I own?
Thanks to all replies
