Previously, I cited specific attention to communicate in writing with my brokerage account point-of-contact regarding the laws governing "stepped- up cost basis" since I have a few stocks with a low cost basis that have appreciated.

My understanding was that cost of stock(s) on the day of my death could be used to update the cost basis of associated stocks.
