Settling an estate usually depends on an appraisal to show fair market value for the property in question. We empathize that in this time of loss, ordering an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. So, it's possible the time an appraisal report is ordered will differ the date of death. Appraisal Professionals assures that our appraisers are knowledgeable about the procedures and requirements needed by the IRS and TX revenue agencies to perform a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date of death. The ethics provision listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) conforms us to confidentiality, certifying the strongest degree of discretion for all parties involved.
