Dividend Reinvestment & Schedule D

Discussion in 'Professional Trading' started by runningman, Feb 3, 2007.

  1. If you owned a stock for approx 4 years and reinvested the dividends, and then sold it, do you need to put each cost basis of dividend reinvestment on the Schedule D or is it OK to use an average cost basis of all the div reinvestments? Thanks.
  2. At the very minimum you have to break out the short term and long term portions of the gain.
