    The sell the amount of shares needed to pay your tax when you vest so there's no unexpected giant tax bill in April.

      That’s vesting, not ESPP.

      RSU vesting includes tax withholding. 100 shares vest --> you get 55

      But we're talking ESPP here, you pay tax on gains after selling.

    15% discount on the lesser of the start and close date. Pretty good, instant 15% profit. Allows a max of 25k per year.
