Kerry A. Ryan has published her article, “Valuation Lessons From Estate of Adell,” in Tax Notes. The abstract reads as follows:

In Estate of Adell, the Tax Court determined that the correct value of a decedent’s interest in a closely held corporation was the figure reported on the original estate tax return. The court rejected alternative values as either using the incorrect valuation method or failing to account for the significant value of a key employee’s personal goodwill.
