Peter,

Thanks for the reply! That's exactly what I thought. The reason I asked is because I am attempting to use TurboTax Premier to prepare my tax return this year, and I am faced with exactly this situation. I apologize if this is an inappropriate question for this discussion board, but if anyone who has any experience with TurboTax can help, I'd appreciate it...TT is classifying all of the reinvested dividends from my inherited stocks/funds as long term, even though clearly they should be a mix of long and short term holding periods. I have tried contacting TurboTax support, with no luck. Anyone have any idea how to get TT to properly classify the sales of these reinvested dividends?

Thanks in advance!
AB
