I'm back to ask for more assistance. 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. I've not had much luck with getting useful info from the IRS in the past. Any suggestions? The companies involved are Oshman's Sporting Goods and Gart Sports. Oshman's was bought by Gart last June. We received $7 and .55 Gart shares for each Oshman's share. Our original purchase price for the Oshman's stock was $6/share last December. Can anyone help?

Thank you.
