Schedule D Gains/Loss reporting

February 7th, 2012 at 06:01 pm

Got a question for you tax experts. I haven't found the answer yet!

I sold a stock. When figuring the "cost" of the stock that I sold, do I add the dividends that I received while I owned the stock as part of the cost?

    Yes, if you re-invested the dividends, they are added to the cost basis.
