Tax implications of withdraw fee from one exchange (Binance) to another GDAX/Coinbase

I transferred 0.2 ETH and 0.3 ETH in separate transfers from GDAX to Binance (GDAX does not charge a fee for this).

Then, I sell my 0.49 ETH on GDAX.

Assuming I would like to report taxes, how do I take into account the 0.01 ETH in transfer fee assuming the following:

0.2 ETH was purchased at $100

0.3 ETH was purchased at $120

0.49 ETH was sold at $400 (within a year)
