I contacted the new company who sent me to the transfering agent (Wells Fargo) who claimed they didn't know anything about the tax implications. They sent me back to the company who said they didn't have the info and told me to call the IRS.That is completely and utterly ridiculous. The companies in question obtained an opinion on the taxability of the transaction, and they should provide you with the information that you need. The idea of sending you to the IRS blows my mind.For what it's worth, I took a look at the sec filings on the transaction. There, it said that OSH stockholders would recognize gain to the extent of the lessor of the following:Fair market value of Gart stock receive plus cash less basis in OSHorCash received.I wouldn't rely on the above for filing your tax return. Keep after the Investment Relations department of the companies involved.Good Luck,Rip
