This is related to "What happens to public shareholders when a public stock goes private?" I am pretty sure the answer is yes, but:

If you own stock in a public company which is bought out, does it still count as a capital gain or loss? Is it essentially treated like you sold the stock at the price of the buy-out? Do you still get a 1099-B from your broker?
