Get informed.

I've been really confused with stock options, RSUs and ESPP and I had not truly understood how these transactions would relate to my taxes (and how any gains would be taxes). Having entered them wrong in turbotax and now having gone through a few cycles of IRS letters/disputes, I've not only cost myself money, but immeasurable stress and health problems from the worry.

The lesson? Get informed. Look carefully and ask questions.

I can understand what you're going through. One of my friends went through the same phase. She had to go through a lot during that time. Yes, I absolutely agree with you that it's very important to update yourself with knowledge on these fields. As far as filing taxes are concerned, taking help from a tax adviser would be great.
