Session 1: A Review of the”Discount for Lack of Marketabilty Job Aid for IRS Valuation Professionals”
Learn how the IRS evaluates discounts for lack of marketability in the IRS’s blockbuster document “Discount for Lack of Marketability Job Aid for IRS Valuation Professionals.” This 107-page Job Aid reviews almost all the DLOM models, databases and studies and was prepared by the IRS Engineering/Valuation Program DLOM Team.
As stated in the IRS DLOM Job Aid: “We will endeavor to explain the intent of the approaches most widely relied upon by practicing valuators as to how each estimates DLOM. We will identify the parameters used in a given approach, the strengths and weaknesses of the approach, the review of the valuation community concerning the approach, and what the courts have had to say about the approach, if anything. The job aid also provides initial IDR questions for examination of DLOM and some sample report language for reviewers to consider in situations where it’s clear that the approach being used by the taxpayer is in error.”
Session 2: Lance Hall Rebuts IRS Criticisms of the FMV Opinions Restricted Stock Database
The IRS’s “Discount for Lack of Marketability Job Aid for IRS Valuation Professionals” critiqued the most well-known discount for lack of marketability methodologies used by valuation professionals, including the well-respected and widely used FMV Restricted Stock Study.
Lance rebuts the IRS’s criticisms by showing: 1)The IRS has not shown that the key characteristics suggested by FMV are statistically invalid.2) FMV’s data is the best market evidence for determining DLOMs on restricted stocks and private equity and has consistently been treated favorably in Tax Court.3) Not every appraisal technique lends itself well to statistical analysis. 4) Why the appraiser can confidently use market evidence from large blocks of restricted stock to determine the DLOM for private equity. 5) FMV has taken care to isolate different factors that impact the DLOM, such as firm characteristics, block size, and market volatility. 6) By measuring the impact of market volatility on the DLOM, FMV controls for changes in market conditions over the long time frame of the FMV Study.
Session 3: Chris Mercer’s Opinions of the IRS Critiques of the DLOM Studies, Databases and Models
Learn what Chris Mercer and Travis Harms think about how the IRS evaluates discounts for lack of marketability in the IRS’s blockbuster document “Discount for Lack of Marketability Job Aid for IRS Valuation Professionals.” This Job Aid reviews almost all the DLOM models, databases and studies and was prepared by the IRS Engineering/Valuation Program DLOM Team. Mercer and Harms discuss the implications of the IRS’s critiques of the most well-known DLOM studies, databases and models. They use the list of “Factors Influencing Marketability” as found in the Job Aid as a starting point for evaluating the models, methods and databases, and discuss the major methods in the context of prevailing business valuation standards.
