I just received a consolidated 1099 from my new broker, which has a 1099B section that lists a sale of some mutual funds (for cash which was then used as a contribution to an IRA, if that makes any difference), which was my only transaction of that type this year. It lists the gross proceed amount and federal tax withheld ($0), but nothing else.

Shouldn't there also be a cost basis for these shares? They were purchased over many years periodically, and also by dividend reinvestment, and there's no way I would ever be able to figure out what my cost basis was. Since this 1099 only lists the gross proceeds, how am I going to get the cost basis so I know what the long term and short term capital gains are?

Thanks so much for any help.

You get it from annual statements you saved each year from the mutual fund company, and/or your broker. They both recorded the dividends you received and reinvested each year. You put them on your Schedule D or A of 1040 each year also. ed

Does your regular mutual fund statement show an average cost per share?
