Adding shares - Transaction Date vs Date Acquired
I received shares as a gift. I have the original cost basis and date acquired by the person who gave them to me. In the "Add shares" window, I'm supposed to enter the transaction date (is that the date I received the shares?) and the date acquired (is that the date acquired by the donor?). If I enter the date acquired by the donor, the register shows that as the transaction date, which is earlier than when I opened the account. If I then click edit, the transaction date has changed to be the same as the date acquired. Is this what's supposed to happen? Am I doing this right?
