quickly becomes impossible. The DRIP Wizard takes care of
everything. Listed below are some reasons that the DRIP Wizard is

Annual Taxes: All dividends must be
reported to the IRS every year--even if the dividend was immediately
reinvested. In addition, certain fees and commissions are
taxable as dividend-income. And still others can be used as
deductions. Without the use of the DRIP Wizard, keeping track
of it all is extremely challenging
Selling Shares - Capital Gains: Though
you will rarely sell shares from a DRIP, it will eventually
happen. When shares are sold, the IRS needs to know the capital
gains on the sale. This becomes extremely complex, as each
reinvested dividends and optional cash payment are separate stock
purchases. Figuring out which shares were sold, which ones
remain, how much commission was paid (if any), how much the total
profit is, becomes extremely complicated. Splits further
complicate the matter. But the DRIP Wizard does everything at
