<<Roy asks:How do you figure tax free? When you sell the shares, your monster gain will be taxed. Period.>><dls replies:I'm confused. I thought any gains made within a Roth IRA are tax-free? >Obviously, there's some confusion here. Gains in a Roth are clearly tax-free. I believe the problem, and the confusion, is that you cannot get the options into a Roth (or any other tax-deferred account). The only allowable contribution to an IRA is cash. Your ISO's are a type of security (not unlike stock certificates). You can't contribute a security to a Roth.
