P.S. Once everything is reflected in the YTD numbers on your paystub, check to see whether you should adjust your withholding. Depending on your other income your income tax liability from the exercise could be much higher or possibly lower than what was actually withheld. You don't want unpleasant surprises (like a large balance due or refund) when you do your return.

Actually, I just looked at the calendar and see that if you exercise during 2013 there really won't be time to play with the withholding. However, if you don't exercise until 2014 it will be helpful.
