Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.

Ask Your Own Tax Question

When you inherited the stocks you received a cost that was Fair Market Value on the date your father passed away. You use long term as your holding period. You will only pay tax on the gain. The gain is the difference in the Fair Market Value when you inherited and the sale price.

Report this on form 8949 and it should carry to Schedule D.

Please let me know if you need more information.

the date acquired is this the date he acquired the stock?
