Adjusting for Stock Dividends

Stock dividends are the same as stock splits and need to be adjusted for manually in TradeLog.
Please see the Adjust for Stock Split function for details.
Note: TradeLog primarily handles trade accounting for all transactions that are required to be reported on IRS Schedule D.  It does not support cash distributions or cash dividends, as these are reported on your Form 1040 - please see our Tax Topic on Cash Dividends. In addition, brokers will include cash dividends on your Form 1099 but generally will not report these on your trade history reports.  For these reasons, if you have received a cash dividend we suggest that you account for this cash independently of your TradeLog software.
