“Hello, i am going to have significant capital gains and increase in my income as the company i work was sold this year and all vested and unvested options were sold.

After 2012, the long-term capital gains tax rate will be 20% (10% for taxpayers in the 15% tax bracket).After 2012, the qualified five-year 18% capital gains rate (8% for taxpayers in the 15% tax bracket) will be reinstated.
“Any deductions that you can suggest that i can leverage ? Any help in the matter will be much appreciated.”----->As described above, it depends on your tax bracket. I guess as long as your marginal tax rate is either 10% or 15%, you need to dispose f your shares before 2013 not to pay LTCG tax on your LTCG.
