I recently sent my order for one share each of Intel(INTC) and Coca-Cola(KO) to Temper of the Times to begin my foray into DRIPs.

I use Quicken 99 to track my finances/investments. Last night I created an account for each of these stocks to begin tracking them once the detailed information comes back from Temper as to the share price etc...

My question is this, when I enter the information into the account, I plan on entering the share price and commision fee, but what do I do with the $20 fee (per stock) that Temper charges for its services? Does it also get entered in the stock account? If so, does it get counted as part of the cost basis, or do I just mark it as some kind of a "banking fee"?
