Does anyone know if I can simply subtract $20 from my gross of $7K and report $6980 net on my US taxes? Yes, sort of.Your broker is going to report the whole $7000 as the gross proceeds of the transaction. You want your tax return to match that. Otherwise, you'll get a nice letter from the IRS saying your return doesn't match the 1099s they received, and please send in some money.Instead, you add the $20 fee to the cost of your shares. Same net result, but better matching to the 1099 you'll get.--Peter
