Last year when VOD acquired ATI, the new combined stock is worth twice the number of ATI shares, this was a tax-free stock swap. BUT I also got a $9/share (based on ATI shares) "CASH CONSIDERATION" which I received and cashed it. It is NOT a cash in lieu of fractional shares, I am sure of this.Then I received a 1099-B form listing the CASH CONSIDERATION amount as Gross Proceeds, with an empty 'Date of Sale' box. How do I report this on Sch. D?, Was it a capital distribution?, a cash in lieu? or a non-taxable proceed?. What is my cost basis if it was a capital gain. Please help & thanks a bunch.
