Short answer--no, it's not just sticker price.

You need "Publication 551 - Basis of Assets" and "Publication 544 - Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets". Go to http://www.irs.ustreas.gov/formspubs/lists/0,,id=97819,00.html and scroll down until you find them.

What I like to do for my first reading is cross out everything that obviously doesn't apply to me. That usually gets the verbiage down to something tolerable.
