Basis Reporting Expands This Year
Posted on Monday, February 06, 2012 Share
Your broker statement for 2011 reported the basis in the stocks you acquired last year. This basis reporting requirement expands this year to include mutual fund shares and stock acquired in a dividend reinvestment plan. The cost basis for these investments is included in reports that brokers send to the IRS. The IRS will compare this information with the basis you report on your tax return when you sell the investment.
