Amended tax return form 2011 )   The term “stock” includes rights to acquire stock, and the term “shareholder” includes a holder of rights or of convertible securities. Amended tax return form 2011 If you receive taxable stock dividends or stock rights, include their fair market value at the time of distribution in your income. Amended tax return form 2011 Preferred stock redeemable at a premium.
