Having your valuables professionally appraised and scheduled on your insurance policy can protect your investments from loss by theft, fire, flood or other natural disasters. A detailed appraisal indicating replacement value will help you in the resolution of casualty claims. When items are damaged, appraisals can include replacement costs, restoration fees and the revised value of the restored piece.
The IRS requires a qualified appraisal to determine the fair market value on all non-cash donations exceeding $5,000. Ensure that you are getting the correct pricing on your donation items in order to file your taxes correctly.
Get accurate price values for your items whether it’s for an estate, insurance policy, or a donation. Contact iStuffSellers for professional appraisal service throughout VA, MD, and DC.
