The form of the business, whether it is family owned business, a closely held corporation, or a so-called subchapter "S" or "C" corporation are all important factors. Massachusetts presently follows the Bernie r rule in certain circumstances, which some experts in this state consider as a situation resulting in business asset overvaluation.
