The Johnson/Park empirical method to estimate a discount for lack of marketability (DLOM) is the third most popular method business appraisers use for this purpose, according to a BVR survey. The method highlights the relation of the DLOM to the return on the investment and quantitatively measures the impact of the rate of return as a function of the DLOM. This methodology has been used in several tax court cases including the first family limited partnership (FLP) case to go to trial. The “2020 Discount for Lack of Marketability Study” provides objective rate of return measures to implement the Johnson/Park empirical method and includes a thorough explanation and example on how to apply these data. In addition to the most recent study, BVR offers all editions going back to 2014. Click here for more information.
