<<So the difference is due to the fact that there are fewer options for individual securities but how does that affect the proof/documentation aspect? Does the same restrictions applied to mutual fund shares when using the specific ID method? (That you need to send an actual letter, etc.)>>The proof/documentation aspect is almost the same for both mutual funds and individual shares when talking about specifying stock, Henry. According to the regulations, if the shares are held by a broker or agent, the shares are considered to be "adequately identified" if:1. You specify the particular shares to be sold2. Your broker provides written confirmation of the indentification and sale within a reasonable period of time.If YOU actually posess the mutual fund shares, the designation of the mutual share certificates would certainly be the best way to properly identify the shares.Hope this helps...TMF TaxesRoy
