I received a 1099B dividend statement that showed I received $100 non dividend distribution from EMD.
I bought 300 EMD on 5/22/2009 for $3926 and sold 300 EMD on 9/5/2017 for $4704.
Should I reduce the cost basis of EMD by $100 when I report the capital gains on Schedule D?

Good Afternoon and welcome to the Community
If the 1099B has the cost basis and sales as the figures you stated, you do NOT change anything. That would all be figured in my the financial institution that generated the 1099B
I hope this helps.

A Nondividend distribution is a return of capital. It's basically a return of your original investment. You will reduce your original basis by that $100 if the Broker has not already done so.
