I am sure many have the same problem. I own some stocks for many years, and I also accumulated some shares for the same stock later on. The original shares have gone through few stock splits and I have lost track of how many splits.

When I sell some of the shares, my original transaction records will definitely not show the same number of shares now.

Do I need to provide the split history information ( dates of the splits, ratio of the splits, etc ) on pager along with my buy/sell transaction records to IRS? If so, where can I get that information? Some of my broker monthly statements do not clearly show that kind of info.
