Trust And Estates Online: Cost Basis Regulations: Blessing or Burden?December 2010
This Trust & Estates Wealth Watch article discusses the new cost basis regulations finalized on October 12, 2010. These regulations implement key provisions of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 that apply to institutions issuing IRS form 1099-B.
In this article, Craig Richards focuses on the burden these regulations place on brokers, agents, and transfer agents, who upon transferring securities out of clients' accounts, must now provide cost basis information within 15 days of the transfer. For many trust companies and accountants, this is a blessing in disguise.
