LPL also expects to get a tax deduction of about $383 million and related benefit of $150.2 million, stemming from two sources. There is the exercise of non-qualified stock options, and the exercise of incentive stock options and subsequent sale of common stock. About $144.6 million of the tax savings as a result of the refund of taxes paid in 2008, 2009 and 2010. The company will realize other $92.7 million over the next 18 to 24 months as it carries the tax losses forward.
