The valuation of closely held companies is a large and growing practice.

Additionally, since closely held entities are typically smaller than publicly traded entities, fewer investors are affected by the results of such valuations.

Get this from a library. Tax opportunities for owners of closely held companies. [Marvin J Dickman]. A closely held business entity does not necessarily have to be a corporation. Sole proprietorships can also be closely held, as long as there are a limited number of shareholders and the stocks are not publicly traded.

Tax implications for businesses subject to the At Risk Rules. The closely-held, family business often is the most significant asset of the business owner’s estate, both from the point of view of valuation for transfer tax purposes as well as for family business succession.

Closely-held, family businesses represent a significant contribution to the Nation’s gross national product and job creation.

With respect to this second level of tax, the owners of a closely held C corporation will have to be mindful of the separate legal status of the corporation, lest they transact with the corporation in such a way as to inadvertently cause a constructive distribution by the corporation that is treated as a taxable dividend to its owners.

A closely held corporation is subject to additional limitations in the tax treatment of items such as passive activity losses, at-risk rules, and compensation paid to corporate officers. Refer to PublicationCorporations for more information.

Personal Holding Company. Over the last thirty years, I have reviewed the income tax returns of many closely held corporations and partnerships.

The federal tax code provides a few perfectly legal ways, depending on your income, goals, and even health, to defer or pay no capital gains tax on stock sales. This case study has been adapted from PPC's Tax Planning Guide—Closely Held Corporations, 27th Edition, by Albert L. Grasso, R.

Barry Johnson, and Lewis A. Siegel, published by Thomson Reuters/Tax & Accounting, Carrollton, Texas, (; ).

Although it may be some time before the Taxpayers’ claims are resolved, the factual setting upon which the disputed taxes are based is a commonly.
