Quicken For Windows Canada Adjusted Cost Base Finagle
I will sell an ETF or Reit and sometimes , quite understandably, receive a final distribution from the old holding after that. This can include income that affects the holding's final adjusted cost base (ACB). My Quicken for Windows Canada capital gains report doesn't pick up this distribution transaction in its calculations, I presume, because it's dated post the holding sell date. I always end up, around income tax reporting time, checking for all such sales. To get the proper ACB, I move the sell transaction to a date slightly past the last distribution after having previously adjusted the distribution to reflect my discount broker's march tax distribution info details report.
