So I think you may remain....1poorguyI expected that anyway! :-(you owe the taxes on the stock even if you take ownershipIf I pay taxes upon exercise (as ordinary income - on the value of the stock when granted 7 years ago?), then I guess the only difference will be whether I take the cash or take the stock (I'm assuming the former will generate a short-term cap gain since I will have owned the stock for only a matter of minutes). So perhaps my selling idea still makes sense since I can sell my ESPP shares for a long-term gain, take ownership of the option shares, and pay only the tax I can't escape from anyway.Am I close?Thanks for the reply, Beth.1poor(er)guy
