I'm handling my mom's finances for her. She has had a Drip account for one stock for many years. Like many stocks, it plummetted a couple of years ago, but has only recovered slightly. So the thought of selling it, or at least some of it, has become a possibility.Here's my problem. I don't have all of the paperwork and can't determine the cost basis for all of the share purchases. Mom has moved four times in the last six years, and I think a lot of this stuff was (Gulp!) tossed.When the shares are sold, will the transfer company (which, I think, only started working with this Drip a few years ago) have the information, or am I up a creek? And if I'm up a creek, how do I handle this when reporting the sale on Mom's taxes?Thanks,cjones100
