I was enrolled in a systematic Employee Stock Purchase Program from July 1998 to April 1999. In May 1999 I sold the stock. How do I compute the basis and purchase date for this stock. The capital gains were minimal, but it was still lucrative to buy the stock because of the former employer matching policy (10% discount). I purchased anywhere from 3 to 8 shares every two weeks depending on the price per share.
