Bebawy, has included some excellent articles, all written by experts at Willamette Associates. The articles include a review of the IRS Job Aid on the valuation of noncontrolling ownership interests in S corps (Curtis R. Kimball), a discussion of the proposed IRC Section 2704 regulations with regard to FLP valuation discounts (Weston C. Kirk), an article on estimating capital expenditures and depreciation expense in the direct capitalization method (Aaron M. Rotkowski and Matt C. Courtnage), several articles by Robert Reilly on goodwill in closely held companies, an explanation of the factors S corp buyers and sellers should consider making a Section 338 election (Robert P. Schweihs), and more. You can access a full copy here.
