I am confused re: cost basis for taxes w/ dividend reinvestment. I have reinvested all my dividends and will be selling stocks soon. The amount of the dividends reinvested have been small. But how do I identify stocks for cost? Or do I need to? I have say 100 shares of GM purchase originally and a couple shares purchased w/ dividends in the year since I purchased the GM stock. I will selling all of my shares. I have searched the help files and find no answer.
