Re: Need help thinking through exercising options

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

If your exercise price + AMT tax bill is several times your annual salary, you’re talking about at least a couple million in options. That might not be "never work again", but that is "retirement is taken care of" money. This is well worth talking to an accounting firm even if it costs a few […]
