    I understand that form 3115 may be used for claiming
    previously unclaimed amortization on goodwill.

    Is this true even an incorrect amount was shown for a
    business on the tax return balance sheet. For example, if
    $15,000 goodwill is shown on the balance sheet and it should
    have been $30,000, amortization should have been $2,000 per
    year, rather than $1,000. Is this the sort of situation
    that calls for Form 3115, or does the amortization not taken
    have to stem from miscalculating amortization on a goodwill
    amount shown correctly on the balance sheet?

    Also, I understand Revenue Procedure 2004-11 allows for
    catch up of amortization in the year a business is sold, and
    that the previous applicable Revenue Procedure was 2002-9.
    Didn't 2002-9 allow for catch up for all years, including
    year of sale?

    Someone reply to this question with tax year 2014 as the "catchup year" for 15 years of non-amortized goodwill ($66,000).
