Generally, settling an estate requires an extensive appraisal report to acquire fair market value for the property to the satisfaction of the parties involved.

DeCicco, SRPA assures that our appraisers are comfortable with the procedures and requirements requested by the IRS and CA revenue agencies to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date of death. The ethical requirements explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our staff to confidentiality, ensuring the strongest degree of discretion for you and your family.

Many people do not understand that the IRS needs reports filed to express the numbers involved in estate sales.
