Settling an estate most often depends on an appraisal to establish fair market value for the estate therein. We know that in this time of loss, acquiring an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. Due to this, it is possible that the date of death differs from the date the appraisal is requested. We are knowledgeable about the practices and requirements needed to provide a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date of death. The ethics provision explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our appraisers to confidentiality, assuring the fullest degree of discretion for you and your loved ones.

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

An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is necessary to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. Such a report will certainly demonstrate to the authorities that the numbers used are well-founded and correct.

Giles Appraisal Group, Inc. guarantees an detailed report, which will give an executor solid facts and numbers that will meet IRS and revenue agency requirements. You need not worry over anything, because we will be there to back up our appraisals if they are ever challenged.

Opinions of value shown in documents provided to the revenue authorities definitely should be backed by a detailed report as to how the appraiser came to his conclusions.
