Abstract: This issue’s “For what it’s worth: Valuation in the courts” looks at a recent divorce case that demonstrates the significant impact that “tax-affecting” an S corporation can have on a business appraisal. The case also shows that court decisions can sometimes have bearing on valuation issues debated in other venues. Citations: Bernier v. Bernier (2007 Mass. LEXIS 598, May 7, 2007). Gross v.
