Settling an estate usually demands an appraisal to show fair market value for the estate affected. It's understandable that thinking about getting an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Because of this, often there will be times that the effective date of an appraisal deviates from the time of death. Greater Houston Area Appraisals assures that we are knowledgeable about 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 date your loved one passed away. The ethics provision listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our staff to confidentiality, certifying the strongest degree of discretion for you and your family.
Most people don't realize that the IRS needs information filed to support the numbers involved in estate sales.
One of the most significant requirements in a report is an appraiser-backed opinion of value in an exhaustive reason as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. Such a report will clearly demonstrate to the TX agencies that the numbers used are accurate and correct.
Having a professional appraisal from Greater Houston Area Appraisals gives the executor undeniable facts and figures to work with in going beyond IRS and TX state agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we assure you that we will stand behind the appraisal if it is ever refuted.
An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is important to support the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions.
