Why Obtain Appraisals in the Estate Planning Process?
The American Society of Appraisers offers several reasons why appraisals should be done during real estate planning. Many experts recommend appraisals get updated annually.
One reason includes complying with IRS regulations when it comes to values claimed on estate or gift tax returns. Plus, it becomes smart to have in case of an IRS audit. ASA also points out appraisal costs can be deducted on estate tax returns and, in some cases, estate planning, for example, if you have a family limited partnership.
Other reasons include a qualified appraiser can help you catalog valuables, maximize your tax benefits and provide a benchmark of the fair market value of all your belongings. This especially comes in handy when buying or selling your real property, such as a home, or other land you may own. This is typically your most valuable asset.
How Do Appraisals Get Used?
Appraisals allow you to know the value and better manage your financial assets during your lifetime. This helps you to make informed decisions should you, for instance, decide to buy or sell your commercial property.
In addition, whether in probate or in a will, assets usually get distributed equally among all heirs and any others you may have designated. Having values based on a list of industry-specific criteria makes this process typically go smoother and ensures your wishes get followed.
The overall value also assists in the determination of any federal or state estate taxes that are potentially due upon your death. Generally, having a comprehensive and accurate appraisal as part of your real estate plan makes it easier on everyone involved.
