Special rules might apply when figuring the basis. These include situations where you received short-term losses on shares for which you received:
- An exempt-interest (tax-free) dividend
- A capital-gain distribution
If either of these applies to you, see Publication 550: Investment Income and Expenses at www.irs.gov.
