Problem – Business Owner Won’t Sell
You may have encountered a business owner reluctant to sell because of the potential taxes on the gain. In many states, like Massachusetts, business owners may now face higher state taxes on capital gains when their total income is over $1M, which can happen when they sell. In addition to the regular federal income taxes owed, the Net Investment Tax or Additional Medicare Premium taxes may be triggered. On top of these, they may also owe state income tax surcharges on income from the business sale. Faced with the prospect of taxes depleting their net sale proceeds, they may delay the sale. And the delay may even risk the future sale value of the business when the owner finally decides to cash in later.
