Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals affirms district court that personal goodwill was a corporate asset

In Larry E. Howard v. U.S., (CA 9 8/29/2011) 108 AFTR 2d ¶ 2011-5226, the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has affirmed a district court’s conclusion that the amount received by a dentist on the sale of his wholly owned dental-practice professional service corporation that was allocated to his personal goodwill was in fact a corporate asset. As a result, the amount was recharacterized as a dividend to him from his corporation.
