I disagree with your accountant. You were issued a 2 for 1 stock split. That literally means you received 2 shares to replace 1 share. Therefore, the basis on each share is now 1/2 of the original cost basis. The company did not just arbitrarily give you more shares for nothing.Your accountant's advise sounds Mickey Mouse to me. I would look for a new accountant.
