    Can someone please help me?

    I may not be of much help as far as the tax treatment of the 108 shares. I have Quicken but an old version (2005). I enter the shares as "added" to show an entry if you already have a position in SPH (which I do). or create a new position for SPH at 0 cost. The 40 cents is nothing more than an income entry as cash. How it is treated as a tax issue is another story altogether. Maybe some folks on this board may give you some help. My guess is that you will have to deal with it when you sell the shares. Hope this helps.

    • Thank you so much. The 40-cents I just put in as miscellaneous income. (Tax-treatment will be as a sale of a partial piece of stock, believe it or not.)

      And, at least for now, I assume I'll just put the 108 SPH shares in as added...from somewhere.

      Maybe later on NRGY will tell us more. Or SPH.

      Geez, I waited and waited to buy NRGY, hoping it would go down. Finally, in desperation, I bought...and THEN it went down. And down. And down. And now I don't like the stock at all!!!

      • If you go back on Inergy Investor Relations or a news release, I believe there might be something in the way the SPH share distribution is treated for tax purposes. This is before the distribution took place in early August. Also, your broker may be able to help you because this happens a lot and they may be familiar with its tax treatment.

        Sorry about the price you paid for NRGY. That's why I don't like the Stock Market. It's a guessing game, or as I like to describe it, a casino.
