Hello Everyone,

Heres some background : I brought into a private company (10%) about 3 years ago. Its going to go public and I'm not being brought out before it does. So I'll be issued a certain # of shares.

Heres the question: If I sell my stocks right away I'm taxed at my current tax rate or 15% since I had ownership in the company for over 3 years.
Second question: Is there anyway to reinvest the profits with out having to pay taxes now?

Thanks for anyone and everyones assistance,
