The information to shareholders regarding the merger should say if it is a "taxable event". I'm assuming it is, but you should verify this.
In this case it is a not, but the point is moot, as I have decided to sell off before the merger. This has been a fairly juicy tick hanging off my dog, but it is bigger than the dog's back leg now, and surgical intervention is needed. I thank you all for standing by while I chewed my hankie. No hankies were harmed.
