Generally, settling an estate requires an detailed appraisal report to determine fair market value for the property to the satisfaction of the parties involved. It's understandable that ordering an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Because of this, often there will be times that the effective date of an appraisal report deviates from the date of your loss. Ascension Appraisal assures that our staff are familiar with the procedures and requirements needed by the IRS and MA revenue agencies to perform a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date of death. The ethical obligations stated within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) attunes our staff to confidentiality, certifying the highest degree of privacy for you and your family.

Many times, people do not fully fathom the need to have a detailed real estate appraisal supplied in support of the numbers shown in tax documents filed with the IRS and MA state agencies.

Opinions of value used in documents provided to the revenue authorities definitely should be supported by an accurate report as to how the appraiser came to his conclusions. This sort of report will certainly substantiate the evidence that the numbers provided within the report are well-founded and accurate.

Ascension Appraisal guarantees an well-founded appraisal report, which will provide an executor solid facts and figures that will exceed IRS and revenue agency requirements. There's no need to be stressed out when getting an appraisal from us, because we will back it no matter what.

One of the most essential requirements in a report is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in a comprehensive explanation as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion.
