I'm sure this must have been asked before, but I can't find it in the FAQs, so...

Due to forced option sales at work, etc. I will be making somewhat north of twice what I made last year. I've already had withheld more than I paid in taxes last year but my total withholding by the end of the year will be well less than my final tax liability. I will have plenty of cash to pay my tax bill come 4/15/2001. Does the safe harbor provision mean that since I've already had withheld more than I owed for all of 1999, I don't have to worry about arranging for my withholding to be within 10% of my final liability for 2000? If so, I'll keep the cash where it can earn me a few bucks in the mean time.

Thanks for any help.
