She had shares of stock as a result of DRIPs. All she did was transfer (the ownership of?) the stock to the brokerage account (I was at the meeting). The stock now shows up on the brokerage statement.

That is the basis of my question - why am I getting 1099-Bs?


Are the 1099-Bs for the total amount of stock transfered or just for fractional shares which the DRP administor sold? Usually brokers will only transfer full shares so the fractional shares will be sold. If they're for the full number of shares, you shouldn't be receiving 1099s and you'll have to contact the DRP administors to find your answer.
