Settling an estate commonly depends on an appraisal to determine fair market value for the estate therein. We know that when you lose a loved one, ordering an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Because of this, now and then there can be times that the effective date of an appraisal report deviates from the time of death. Kent & Associates Appraisal assures that our staff are knowledgeable about the procedures and requirements needed by the IRS and WA revenue agencies to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date your loved one passed away.
