Please tell me if exercising cashless options automatically subjects you to AMT. If you exercise these options, should you immediately start making quarterly estimated payments to the IRS?

I heard that a good strategy when exercising cashless options would be to take 30% of the check and put it in a CD until your taxes are due but that conflicts with what I heard about having to make tax payments immediately.

I also heard that you should ALWAYS consult with a tax attorney when exercising cashless options. PLEASE, Motley Fools,SET ME STRAIGHT!!!
