A couple of years ago, I was given some options, non-qualified I believe it is called. Thestock at the time was $19 and is currently around $30. When I buy the stock, I will haveto pay taxes on the difference between the $19 and the $30. a. Are the taxes I pay income or capital gains? Is there any way to pay 20% instead of 28%? b. After the stock is bought and the taxes are paid will the $30 price be my new base price? c. Will I then have to wait 18 months and a day to sell the stock and pay 20% capital gains?If this has already been discussed, just point me to the relevant message.Thanks for your time and attention.Valerie
