hi all,background: i live abroad, and participate in my employer's espp through my foreign bank. recently, banks in our country (israel) started reporting to the irs, so for the first time this year i received a 1099-div from this bank. on the statement i recently received from my bank (not the 1099-div), the cost basis of the stock is way off - it is too low by a factor of 100. i've reported this, but they work very slowly - it could be months or years before they sort it out. now to my question: if i sell stock (i have only ever bought), does the bank report the cost basis on some form to the irs? if so, then it seems that i shouldn't sell before i get the bank's records corrected - is this right? or is it ok to claim the correct basis on my returns if i know i am right (i have the documentation to prove it).thanks in advance for your help,c.
