Can I deduct my remaining 2012 legal expenses as part of the "Selling Expenses" I incurred for this transaction?Let me put my answer this way. I don't know if you can, but in your shoes, I would. The expenses just strike me as being incurred as an integral part of the sale.Should the company have sent me any type of tax form (such as a 1099) reporting the sale?Whether they should or not is their problem, not yours. If I were advising them, I'd advise them to file a 1099B. But whether one is issued or not, your concern is reporting the sale on your return. The 1099 doesn't matter to you or change your tax obligation in any way.--Peter
