According to the IRS, all inherited property is considered long term. Correct.However, what about the reinvested dividends that I received after I inherited the funds/stocks? Those are additional purchases of those stocks/funds after you inherited them. Do the gains/losses on the reinvested dividends need to be broken down into long term and short term, as they would be if I had purchased the original funds/stocks?Yes. Each reinvestment is a separate purchase that will have it's own holding period. Those reinvestments are not inherited.--Peter
