The article discusses the author's views on the characteristic of transferee liability during sale of a business enterprise. He explains that transferee liability could present a problem when the seller incurs a federal income tax liability, built-in gains tax or excess net passive income tax liability. The author thinks that it is vital for the seller's accountant to verify the purchaser's income tax reduction claims.
