I tried to see if there was any information on stock buyouts in the FAQ but I couldn't find any so I will ask my question.

In January of 1998 I bought 300 shares of GNT at $25 per share. GNT was bought out by CNC in July and the shares were converted to 274 shares of CNC (I can't remember the exact share price). However, there was $47.38 left over which was placed as cash in my account. How is this "residue" money treated for tax purposes?
