Estate Appraisals & Donations
Estate appraisals need to be kept up to date so the cost basis is correct when the property passes to another person. Donations or charitable contributions require appraisals for property valued over $5,000. More in depth appraisals are required for property valued over $20,000. Every donation valued over $150,000 is reviewed by the Art Appraisal Service of the Internal Revenue Service.
