The company I work for was recently bought out. I purchased shares in my company at $.20 a share. The company that purchased us is trading in the $230's.

I would like to gift $10k of stock for the next couple of years to my 7 & 9 year old to start a college fund.

I plan on holding the stock for a while.

Any ideas how to minimize the taxs on the gains??
