[Unedited Question-Answer Interview]


The allocated purchase price must be reported to the IRS. Goodwill is considered a capital asset. Therefore, the seller will want to allocate as much of the selling price to goodwill as possible. The buyer will want to allocate more of the selling price to non-goodwill assets because goodwill amortization is not tax deductible while depreciation and amortization of other assets is tax deductible. This “negotiated” goodwill will stand as the IRS value.“


Thus, the IRS has effectively forced the controversial goodwill determination on practice buyers and sellers. This makes it even more imperative for buyers to specifically identify any hidden practice assets they are acquiring at the time of purchase; or for purchasers to discover them.


Q: What asset might have less value than a toxic credit-debt-obligation [CDO]?

A: A private medical practice

Obama says healthcare is an American “right”.

John S. McCain

McCain opines that healthcare is a personal “responsibility”

Ayn Rand

The objectivist philosopher Ayn Rand opines thusly.
