Tom,
You use the same process you value any business, which is recasting the numbers from the tax return to give you cash flow to the owner. Most business sell as a multiple of that number. The multiple is determined by how the business is doing and what the forecast is. Start with three years tax returns.

Please let me know if you have more questions.

Thanks,
Janelle
