Commonly, settling an estate necessitates an clear appraisal report to show fair market value for the home to the satisfaction of the parties involved. It's understandable that thinking about an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Of course, it's imperative to comfort your family first. Joseph Mier & Associates assures that our appraisers are comfortable with the procedures and requirements needed by the IRS and LA revenue agencies to produce a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date of death. The ethics provision stated within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our staff to confidentiality, providing the strongest degree of privacy for you.

Most people don't realize that the IRS needs information filed to support the numbers involved in estate sales.

One of the most essential requirements in a report is an appraiser-backed opinion of value in an exhaustive reason as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. A report of this caliber will certainly demonstrate your claim that the numbers within within the report are well-founded and accurate.

Joseph Mier & Associates ensures an well-founded report, which will give an executor clear facts and figures that will exceed IRS and 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 required to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions.
