The basis and holding period are from when she bought them, though the limit of $10k to have gifts not taxed is from when you are given the gift. You didn't give all the info, but lets say she bought them at $40.share over a year ago. Then if you sold at $50 you would have your "profit" of $1800 taxed as long term capital gains....20% if you aren't in the 15% tax bracket.What if she bought them the day before they were gifted? Then am I in the "Short Term Gains" boat since they would be held under a year if I sold now.
