Commonly, settling an estate requires an extensive appraisal report to suggest fair market value for the property to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We understand that in this time of loss, even thinking about an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Because of this, now and then there can be times that the effective date of an appraisal deviates from the time of death. T.H.E. Appraisers assures that our appraisers are accustomed to the procedures and requirements needed by the IRS and IA revenue agencies to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date of death. The ethics provision listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) keeps our staff to confidentiality, providing the strongest degree of discretion for you.

Many people do not understand that the IRS requires documents filed to express the numbers involved in estate sales.

Opinions of value shown in documents provided to the revenue authorities absolutely should be backed by a detailed report as to how the appraiser came to his conclusions. Such a report will clearly demonstrate to the IRS that the numbers used are accurate and correct.

An executor will be over-joyed by an appraisal by T.H.E. Appraisers which will provide him undeniable facts and figures to work with the IRS and IA state agencies' requirements. You need not be concerned over anything, because T.H.E. Appraisers will be there to stand by our work if they are ever challenged.

An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is required to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions.
