I had a regular IRA account that I was having trouble getting transfered from one trustee to another to I simply requested distribution of the money (~$50,000). However it came to me less 20% with holding to Uncle Sam. Now I need to come up with the other 20% before the 60 days are up. I also have in a taxable account shares of stock that I do not want to sell for tax reasons. Questions:

1. Can I use equivelent value of stock to add to the 80% cash to deposit into the new rollover account so as to come up with the needed dollar amount?

2. If so, how are the value of the stock shares determined -- prior day's closing price, avg. of high or low, etc.?
