Settling an estate most often requires an appraisal to suggest market value for the house involved. We understand that in this time of loss, ordering an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. So, it's possible the time an appraisal report is needed will not match the date of death. MEF Appraisal Group assures that we are familiar with the procedures and requirements requested by the federal and Florida revenue agencies to supply a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the date of death. The ethical requirements explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) keeps our company to confidentiality, certifying the fullest degree of discretion for you and your family.

Many times, people do not fully fathom the requirement to have a full appraisal prepared in support of the figures displayed in general documents filed with the IRS and Florida state agencies.

Opinions of value displayed in documents provided to revenue authorities definitely should be supported by an exhaustive 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 substantiated.

Having a professional appraisal report from MEF Appraisal Group gives the executor solid facts and figures to work with in meeting IRS and Florida state agency requirements. You need not stress over anything, because MEF Appraisal Group will be there to stand by our appraisals if they are ever refuted.
