Hello All,

Need to change the registration on some tax certificates (clerical change really ) and was wondering what the tax consequences would be of adding an additional name as a TOD (transfer on death) - - - upon my passing does the stock then transfer to them, tax free - and if so what would be their cost basis...
(I have checked and in my state TOD is recognized)

Thanks in advance -
Just wondering if registering it this way will make it easier or save any in taxes...

Best of Investing to All
Dar
