Per the broker, the shares were worth $13.96 each when I "received them" and $14.92 when sold, resulting in a gain that must be reported I guess...

I would bet that the sale was reported already for you on your W-2.
Go back to your pay statements and W-2.

For the RSU I'm familiar with the market value of the shares you receive on the date your RSUs vest is your "cost basis."
So when they "sell" them to cover the taxes due on that day, there isn't capital gains, there's just the regular income that automatically winds up in the W-2.

I'd search your internal company website for help on RSU tax treatment/reporting - there's probaly a FAQ.

Good luck
And remember, you can always file for an extension (probably would be a good idea at this point.)
