When you buy or sell a stock there is a trade date and a settlement date. As it happens, on a recent sale the trade date was 12/29/2011 and the settlement date was 01/04-2012. If I follow the trade date, this goes on our 2011 taxes. If I use the settlement date is goes on 2012. Which am I supposed to use?We held the stock for more than 12 mo. so it is long-term capital gains in either case.brucedoe
