I owned stock in a private company that was acquired by a public company.
I took an 83(b) election on the stock when I received it so I can now
pay only long-term capital gains on sale of the stock.
Do I need to include any statement with my tax return to indicate that
the stock I sold was received as a result of this merger? Or does the
IRS not care, so long as I declare the proper basis for the stock?
