The Tax Aspects of Acquiring a Business, Second Edition
The Tax Aspects of Acquiring a Business is a guide writ- ten to the tax considerations that must be weighed when acquiring an existing business, whether the business is conducted as a proprietorship, partner- ship, limited liability company, S corporation, or a C corporation. The book looks at the transactions from the point of view of the seller as well as the buyer. This symmetrical view is presented because the tax effects on the seller will influence the acceptable terms for the deal.
The book describes the tax consideration in quantifiable terms by demonstrating the actual calculations that must be made to evaluate the after-tax consequences of the terms of an acquisition agreement. The changes in the law that were made by the 2017 Tax Act are incorporated in the book.
