We help you Navigate Estate Appraisal Challenges

If you (Executor, Lawyer, Accountant, Trustee, Family member, etc.) are responsible for overseeing the dissolution of an estate, the need for auto appraisals can often be a challenging part of the probate process.

All of our reports are prepared by “certified appraisers” who are well-versed in creating a customized document for each and every vehicle that meets the standards and requirements of the IRS, state agencies, and the courts.

That’s an important factor when you are filing documents with revenue authorities. Should an estate be contested in court, having an accurate and detailed appraisal on any autos owned by the deceased is essential to ensure that all parties are treated fairly and will help allow any proceeds to be evenly distributed among inheritors while often eliminating or minimizing disputes that might arise otherwise.

Having qualified estate settlement auto appraisals can also come into play in determining inheritance taxes.

A well-documented appraisal can save thousands in taxes by providing the IRS with clear, accurate figures, rather than allowing them to estimate a value that may or may not reflect the actual fair market value of the car. Furthermore, knowing the value of the vehicle in relation to any tax obligations can assist your interaction with inheritors in helping to decide the best way to handle the vehicle in the estate settlement.
