I called this cost basis to sell stock
Perhap I should have named it something else

The question is regarding what dollars are taxd on a stock sale when the stock was issued to me as a direct result of owning other stock.

A company issued B stock giving 1 share B for every 3 shares of A

I want to sell the B stocks that were originally issued and asked what the cost basis would be.

Can someone answer this please? We want to do this as soon as possible if it is feasable
