I went to Viacom's website and downloaded the sheet for figuring the basis in my shares. It was easy peasy. And I found out that I declared $24 more in cap gains for the cash-in-lieux than I needed to, resulting in the unnecessary payment of $6 more in taxes that I didn't really owe. I hope it got spent on ethanol subsidies.
