Generally, settling an estate requires an clear appraisal report to establish fair market value for the property to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We understand that in times like this, acquiring an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Because of this, often there are times that the effective date of an appraisal differs from the date of your loss. Feikert Appraisal Service assures that we are accustomed to the procedures and requirements requested by the IRS and CA revenue agencies to provide a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethical requirements listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our appraisers to confidentiality, guaranteeing the strongest degree of discretion for you and your loved ones.
The importance of needing an appraisal when working with the IRS to prove income when filing documents is often not considered by most people.
One of the most significant requirements in a report is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in a comprehensive explanation as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. Such a report will definitely demonstrate to the IRS that the numbers used are accurate and substantiated.
Feikert Appraisal Service ensures an accurate report, which will give an executor accurate facts and figures that will meet IRS and state agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we are there to stand behind the report if it is ever refuted.
An exhaustive report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is required to support the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions.
