Hohumm777, vkg, ptheland,

Thanks to all for the various wordings of your responses. Upon further quizzing of my son (he lives in a different part of the state), he replied that the gross proceeds were about $20 with the cap gain as $0.10. I told him of your replies and suggested that he go ahead with filing the extra 2 pieces of paper. He's filing by hand and reading all instructions and so on (not using a software program since he wants to read and understand what he's doing). His tax situation is very simple at this point with just salary on a W-2, standard deduction, dividends and interest from various accounts. Thanks again!
