Just to clarify one thing above that I see doesn't read very well:

When I say that my tax would be 10.4% less if the deal closes at the end of May rather than March, I don't mean that I am only paying 10% fewer tax dollars. I mean that the tax rate that I am paying on my YONG gains is 10% less (e.g. if my rate including state/city is 30% on those gains at 3/31, it goes down to 20% on 5/31). In terms of dollars, I would actually be paying 33% more tax dollars with the March close vs May, so it is quite significant.
