File 2009 taxes online late The distribution is in convertible preferred stock and has the same result as in (2). File 2009 taxes online late The distribution gives preferred stock to some common stock shareholders and common stock to other common stock shareholders. File 2009 taxes online late The distribution is on preferred stock. File 2009 taxes online late (The distribution, however, is not taxable if it is an increase in the conversion ratio of convertible preferred stock made solely to take into account a stock dividend, stock split, or similar event that would otherwise result in reducing the conversion right. File 2009 taxes online late )   The term “stock” includes rights to acquire stock, and the term “shareholder” includes a holder of rights or of convertible securities.
