Hey Debra,

Are you going to determine your cost basis for the liquidated partial share or just use a cost basis of $0?

definitely use $0...

Did you receive a 1099 for previous years? For amounts less than $10, a 1099 DIV isn't required but can be issued.

Will check and see when I get home, but sure don't remember one.... I don't remember seeing dividends of greater than $10 total in the past, but am certainly going to look back at the brokerage and my previous returns..

thanks again
