Estate Trust & Date of Death Real Property Appraisals

Appraisals are increasingly coming under IRS scrutiny. If you need to obtain an appraisal of a decedent’s property, make sure that the person appraising the property is an expert in that field. The appraiser will, as a rule, attach to the appraisal a resume or curriculum vitae showing his or her qualifications. If it’s not attached to the official appraisal, ask for it.

Should the IRS ever question the valuations you use on a Form 706, appraisals jotted down on a piece of paper may not fly, but one that documents the value of the item in question and the qualifications of the appraiser most likely will. Goosby Valuation is an expert in appraising real estate in Greater Los Angeles. Call Now:
