Generally, settling an estate requires a detailed appraisal report to establish market value for the property to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We know that in this time of loss, acquiring an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Because of this, often there can be times that the effective date of an appraisal differs from the date of your loss. Gary F. Ernat assures that our appraisers are familiar with the procedures and requirements needed by revenue services to supply a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the date your loved one passed away. The ethics provision explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) conforms our appraisers to confidentiality, guaranteeing the strongest degree of discretion for all parties involved.

People often forget that the IRS needs reports filed to support the numbers involved in estate sales.

Opinions of value used in documents filed with the IRS and Illinois agencies absolutely should be supported by a comprehensive report as to how the appraiser came to his conclusions. Such a report will clearly demonstrate to the IRS that the numbers used are well-founded and correct.

An executor will be satisfied by an appraisal report by Gary Ernat which will show him irrefutable facts and figures to cooperate with the IRS and Illinois state agencies' requirements. You need not be concerned over anything, because we will be there to stand by our work if they are ever challenged.
