So, we understand that the date an appraisal is ordered will differ the date of death. Our company is familiar with the practices and requirements needed to perform a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date your loved one passed away. The ethical requirements listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our company to confidentiality, providing the fullest degree of discretion for all parties involved.

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

An exhaustive report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is important to support the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. Such a report will certainly demonstrate to the IRS that the numbers used are well-founded and substantiated.

An executor will be ecstatic by a report by R. Scott Pierce Appraisal Services which will show him solid facts and numbers to work with the IRS and MS state agencies' requirements. There's no need to have anything but peace of mind when getting a report from us, because we will back it no matter what.

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