Don't know if anyone is left monitoring this board.

I had 100 BUD with etrade. I show $7000 credited to me for the InBev deal as of 18 Nov 08. I also show a "Reorg Service Charge" of $20.00. I spoke to a friend of mine with another broker, he also has a similar charge.

Normally one can take out broker fees, but they are usually part of the same transaction - broker fees are not listed separately to the IRS. Does anyone know if I can simply subtract $20 from my gross of $7K and report $6980 net on my US taxes?
