Hey All, we've had two shareholders recently want to add and remove a family member from their stock certificate. In both cases the transfer attorney our co-op employees charged them $5,000. This seems like an outrageous amount of money to me. Our Treasurer who is friendly with the transfer attorney said it was possible that recent changes in how co-op shares are treated for tax purposes may have led to the high bill. But I've been doing research online and cannot find a single article mentioning this change. Is there a validity to this or are our shareholders being gouged.Join the Conversation Comments (0)
