see that some of the shares are from dividends that were re-invested. Since I already paid taxes on those dividends, is there anything special I do so I don't pay too much or more tax than I need to?

You don't need to do anything more special than the way you would normally deal with selling shares from reinvested dividends - you will still have to come up with a basis (cost) of those shares and then deal with the gain or loss from the date you received them until the date of the sale.
