Tax Filing Questions?

There is an employee stock purchase program through work that I participate in. Basically each paycheck a very small percentage (less than 5%) goes towards the purchase of my company’s stocks, which I get at a discounted rate. Now, I didn’t sell any in 2012 at all, just held on to them. I still haven’t received any forms from Fidelity for these yet. I know it’s very early yet but I’m just trying to organize everything. So am I going to be taxed for being a part of this program or would I only be taxed for selling said stocks? I’m looking at 2011’s forms and I only seem to have 1099-B’s for sell of stocks, but I just want to make sure so that I don’t delete the email or accidentally throw the form away if I get it in the mail. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

    You’re only taxed when you sell some of the stock. Keep all paperwork though, since you’ll need to know what you paid for it.
