Last year we gifted to my son some stocks we had been grooming for him for years. Market value close to $20K. The transfer was done in three pieces, around $4K in cash, and the rest in two separate transfers of securities, account to account within Fidelity.

Was the $4k already cash or was it the result of a sale of securities? If the result of sale there is some reporting on that (included in one of your tax returns).
