Ack.

Today I am wading through the wild world of Stock Options and capital gain taxes. I haven't quite figured out why I pay taxes when I buy the things, and again when I sell them. When did we become white collar enough to worry about things like stock options and capital gains?!? Tax time is gonna be bizzare this year.

Get yourself an accountant who has vast experience in stock options.

Quite a few years back we exercised options, paid taxes on their value ahead of time then again when they became actual capital gains. The challenge was the fact that the value was greater than the gains.....any I digress----get a GREAT accountant!

But lucky you that you're able to reap capital gains in this environment!
