: I am gifting stock to a family member. What is the best way to record this transaction? Do I use my original basis as the cost or the current price? How do I handle the transactions fees?

: Thanks,

Hi Bob,
You could record a sell at your cost basis. Transaction fees could
either be recorded as a commission fee on this sale, or as a separate
"Account Fee". I believe when you gift shares the basis also transfers, but
you should consult a tax advisor on this.
