Customer Question
I am working on a...
I am working on a plan to sell some stock so that I can invest that stock sale money into real estate. I am concerned that my taxable income will go up to high moving me into a higher tax bracket and possibly affecting my health care costs. Can anyone provide some advice so that I can avoid a higher tax bracket and keep my health care costs the same? Thanks!

Morning Lev:
Here is what I came up with to answer your questions. I have stocks (not yet listed below) which I have owned for about 8 years which have had the dividends reinvested the entire 8 years. Do we need to just account for the dividends re-invested this year, or all 8 years? Let me know what info I need to send you for these stocks or anything else. I have listed the other stocks I want to sell below. Thanks for your help, ChrisOther taxable income:Rental Income $6500 for the year
Other Business Income:$8000Stock info

Do we need to just account for the dividends re-invested this year, or all 8 years?You need to account ALL reinvested dividends - and add that amount to your basis..Apple28 shares bought at $84.91 = 2377.4812 Shares bought at $93.27 = 1119.24Total basis 3496.72Expected sale price 40 shares at $106.91 = 4276.4Expected capital gain gain = 4276.4(selling price) MINUS 3496.72(adjusted basis) = 779.68

Thanks for the help Lev. Is the attached document helpful to you in figuring out the re-invested dividends since I started investing?
Tax Professional: Lev, Tax Advisor replied 1 year ago
Yes - I see that 50.47 of dividends were used to purchase additional shares in 2016- so that mount is added to the basis.You might need similar statements for all prior years.
