I have a stock that was involved in a merger.
After the share exchange, I ended up with LT-held shares, ST-held shares and cash-in-lieu. I sold the shares recently.
1. How do I account for cash-in-lieu- is it a LT shares entry, ST shares entry or somehow prorated between the two?

2. There was a mandatory reorganization fee for this merger event. Can this fee be added to the cost basis of either transaction entry or somehow prorated, or is this a schedule A item?
