TMFPMarti writes (in part):This is actually a lot easier than it appears on the surface since you're going to sell all your shares. You can show your date acquired as "various." Your basis is the total of:1. Any amount relating to the purchases reported as wages on your W-2's; plus2. Your reinvested dividends.I reply:One tweak may be necessary here. If you are still purchasing shares through a DRIP, then the purchases within one year of your sale are short-term shares which must be accounted for separately from the remaining long-term shares.If you end up deciding to sell only a portion of your holdings, be sure you understand the rules pertaining to specific identification, because those rules, properly applied, can save you money. --Bob
