DH has RSUs that will vest in February. Unless he specifies he wants to pay in cash, shares will be withheld to cover the taxes owed. Is there any reason not to withhold shares? We do have the cash but don't plan to hold on to the stock after it vests. We would sell immediately because we don't want to hold that much in company stock (401k match is in company stock).

Also, is there anything else we need to be aware of in regard to the taxes? The amount isn't enough to push us into the next tax bracket. TIA.
