All too often, people do not fully appreciate the need to have a detailed personal property and real estate appraisal prepared in support of the numbers being used in documents filed with legal and revenue authorities.
Appraisal of value used in documents filed with the revenue authorities should be supported by a detailed report as to how the appraiser arrived at his conclusions. Such a report will certainly demonstrate to the authorities that the numbers used are well-founded and substantiated.
Having a professional appraisal gives the executor solid facts and figures to work with in meeting the families, IRS and state agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we stand behind the appraisal if it is challenged. A qualified estate appraisal can take a lot of pressure of the entire family.
