Hi there, About two years ago, my company gave me 2,500 stock options. A few months ago the stock split, giving me 5,000 shares... I plan to sell just enough shares to pay the 30% taxes on what I sold, and still have enough left over to buy the remaining shares. I plan to keep these remaining shares for 12 months, so I can cash out under the "capital gains" tax... (First question -- does this sound like a good idea?) After I hold onto the remaining shares for 12 months, I plan to cash out and buy a new home for my wife and two kids. (Second question -- can I tax shelter the capital gains tax with the purchase of real estate?) I hope all that makes sense -- I'm sort of new to stocks, and I don't quite know all the lingo... :) thanks for your help, Guy
