fleg9bo; "Then there's the matter of the cash-in-lieu payments. Since I already paid taxes on that, I assume I can increase my basis in each stock by the amount of the cash-in-lieu.

Do I have that right?"


Not a tax pro, but that sounds backwards to me. I suspect that some of your basis was allocated to the cash-in-lieu, especially if it was payment for what would have been a partial share.

Waiting to hear the pros chime in.
