Subject:  Q about SEC fees when selling Date:  4/23/2010  10:17 PM

I was curious to know if the SEC fees (in a taxable account) upon sale were proportional to the proceeds amount or a set dollar amount as with commissions. About how much are the fees, like say on $1K proceeds, just for example.
Correct me if wrong but generally then the 1099-B would report the proceeds net of commissions but still with the fees attached, so your real pocketed money would be slightly less than the sales price on your Sch. D, right?

And aside from the above question, if I hold a sharebuilder Roth containing ETFs and choose to sell one there would be a commission and fees too, but one wouldn't receive a 1099 unless taking a distribution, right?
