Please can anyone explain how this should be treated for taxes?

I had accumulated 66.895 shares of Stock A in a DRIP

Of the total, .664 shares cost $6.67 during the past year (short-term treatment)
The rest are long term at a cost of $ 876.87
Toatl $883.54

Now the fun.

Tender offer for all of the shares.

You get $ 35.75 / share = $2391.50

You also get 19.734 shares of a new stock.

The fractional shares, .734 are then immediately sold the same day at $ 67.014/ share (price of the new stock)

.734 x $67.014 = $ 49.19

Check received = $ 2391.50 + $49.19 = $ 2440.69

I now have 19 shares of a new stock and a check for $2440.69

What tax is due and how do I arrive at it?


I hope some one can help me with this one.

Thanks

MEG
