I recently closed out an Intel DRIP account so that I could deposit my shares in my regular brokerage. I have some questions regarding how to treat this for tax purposes:1) I had a fractional number of shares left over which was liquidated (and they sent a check). Which shares should I use to compute the cost basis? I assume it would be the oldest shares in my account. Is this correct?2) Intel changed the way they do rounding so that their records and my records differ slightly. Should I use my records or theirs when I report the number of shares sold? According to their records I sold 0.096 shares and according to my records I sold 0.095514. Does it make any difference to the IRS which number I use as long as the total proceeds match up?Thank you,Craig
