I don't deserve to have anyone help me, as I've literally waited until the last second to do my taxes; but I'm crossing my fingers anyway, because I'm having trouble getting through to TurboTax (go figure!).Situation: I received an award of Restricted Stock units from my employer on 3/8/2007:- 1/3 (118 shares) of these vested in 2008, - 1/3 (118 shares) vested in 2009, and - 1/3 (118 shares) vested in 2010. (It's likely that I messed up prior tax returns; and as soon as I finish this one, I'll verify and refile if necessary.) I have not touched this stock; but when each set of shares vested, apparently some shares (41 in 2010) were sold to cover taxes. (If that's true, why do I have to report this at all??? This doesn't make any sense to me.) That leaves 77 shares that were awarded to me, which again, I haven't touched. 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...although again, if this was taken for taxes, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND why this is necessary. The statement mentions:- exercise date (3/10/2010)- settlement date (3/15/2010)- grant price ($0)- exercise FMV ($13.96)- Sale price ($14.32)but the rows don't align up the way I would expect (for example Exercise Date lines up with Grant Price, not Exercise FMV); so I think that's part of what's throwing me off.The specific questions I'm trying to answer within TurboTax (Premiere) are: - Date option granted- Exercise price per share- Date option exercised - Fair market value – exercise date (per share)- Number of shares transferredI know this will seem straightforward to many; but I am a dummy. So if anyone can make heads or tails of this and help me answer the questions above, I would appreciate it...and not hold you accountable for giving actual tax advice. :)Thanks,scollywaltz
