Knowing the proper value of a business ownership interest is crucial in circumstances such as litigation, shareholder disputes, buy-sell agreements, and estate planning. The majority of closely held business owners do not know the value of their business ownership interest. Adding to the complexity, the value of a business ownership interest may vary for different purposes. For example, a business ownership interest may have one value for marital dissolution purposes and a different one for estate and gift tax purposes.
