Payroll dedutions on employee stock options, when cashed out, is about 55%.

The Sunday, Jan. 1, 2001, St. Paul Pioneer Press had an article by Knight Ridder News Service. A paragraph of this short insertion stated that the IRS will not assess payroll taxes or require income tax withholding on purchases through employee stock purchase plans or the excercise of incentive stock options before Jan. 1, 2003.

I have scanned through the IRS web site and find nothing regarding this moratorium.

I have come across no other articles regarding this.

Is anyone aware of this IRS decision????
