Last year I sold some of my company stock for the first time. My question has to do with how to report the buy date. I bought a certain number of shares of stock per month through payroll deductions over a period of several months. I then sold all of the shares. Do I report the date the first shares were purchased, the last shares were purchased, somewhere in the middle, or what?
