Entering taxable corporate spin-off, Qkn 2019

GE recently did a taxable spin-off of Wabtec stock. How should this be ent ered in Qkn 2019? The Help message says to (1) enter a MISC INC transaction
from GE, with the amount being the value of the spun-off shares, followed by (2) an ADDED transaction for the new shares in Wabtec. However, in doing this, the miscellaneous income stays in the cash balance of the account. How should this be handled?

I suggest waiting for the official GE investor's information on the exact treatment of the Wabtec spinoff so that your cost basis of GE stock can be allocated between GE and the new Wabtec shares. If you received a fractional share it was sold and one must calculate the CapGain so need cost allocation.
If you find official GE info please post here since when I searched I cannot find it yet.

Since this corp spin-off is taxable, I'm pretty sure the original GE cost b asis is not allocated between the GE shares and the Wabtec shares. I just found out the cash-in-lieu for the fractional share, which I assume is taxa ble income.

John...Thank you. That explains it well. If only Qkn would at least clean up its Help info ...
