Settling an estate commonly demands an appraisal to ascertain fair market value for the residential property involved. It's understandable that thinking about an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. So, it's possible the time an appraisal report is requested will differ the date of death. Elite Appraisal Services assures that we are comfortable with the procedures and requirements needed by the IRS and TX revenue agencies to produce a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethics provision explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us to confidentiality, guaranteeing the highest degree of discretion for you and your family.

People often forget that the IRS requires reports filed to show the numbers involved in estate sales.

One of the most important requirements in an appraisal is an appraiser-backed opinion of value in a detailed reason as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. Such a report will certainly demonstrate to the IRS that the numbers used are accurate and correct.

Elite Appraisal Services guarantees an substantiated appraisal, which will give an executor clear facts and figures that will exceed IRS and state agency requirements. You need not stress over anything, because we will be there to back up our work if they are ever refuted.

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