Top 2011 downloads: a snapshot of BV issues & interests

BVWireIssue #112-2
January 11, 2012

By far the most popular free download from BVR this past year was the IRS’s DLOM Job Aid, followed by another tax-centered topic, a copy of the Tax Court’s Gallagher decision (see table below). Recent updates to the Goodwill Hunting Guide illustrate the continuing interest in this complicated topic, as does number six on the list, on factors influencing personal goodwill allocations in selected case law. For the complete, current list of complimentary resources, visit the BVR free downloads page.

This year, look for future updates to perennial favorites, such as new excerpts from Mergerstat and transactional databases as well as just-published downloads on IRS and tax-related topics, such as the long-anticipated revised FLP appeals guidelines and any guidance on qualified appraisals/appraisers. We’ll continue to offer the latest “landmark” valuation cases as well as regulatory and industry overviews. If there’s any particular download that you’d like to see in 2012, please email the BVWire editor.
