Eric, Because of the amount of money involved it would only be prudent that you do a little investigative work.I suggest you start out by contacting the Shareowners Investor Services for Exxon and explain your dilema. They may have a tracking of your account from day one and be able to provide you with the gross amount of reinvested dividends to add to your original cost.If this doesn't work ask them for the history of the dividend payout rate and the share price reinvested dividends were issued at.(for the period of time you need). You could then reconstruct your cost for the reinvested dividends that was reported on your tax return for the 26 year period. You need to take into account stock splits when you format your spread sheet.This is obviously some work but the effort will substantially reduce the capital gains amount.
