Help me understand Dividends Tax implications for VTSAX

Thinking of starting a taxable account and purchasing 10-15k of VTSAX. Wondering about dividends and the tax implications, is this something I need to concern myself with each year or only during years where I sell the fund? Is it adventageous to buy in 2012 or wait for 2013? Any additional insight?...

I understand that there is no risk to losing money however theoretically if the $ was kept in a savings account there would have been some interest earned that is not realized . Any input as to the forecast on the potential for deflation ?

Re: 31 Maxing out Roth & 401k -extra cash available to inve

Thank you for the explanation , I think that is a good idea and I plan on moving 10K for 2012 and 10K for 2013. The only risk I see with this is if the semiannunal inflation rate drops to 0% and my bonds do not earn anything for 8 months of 2013.
Any thoughts on this?

31 Maxing out Roth & 401k -extra cash available to invest?
