IRS, LOSS, GIFT and ESTATE VALUATIONS:
Changes in the Rules and How They Impact the Appraisal Process
The IRS has finalized rules for substantiating and reporting cash and noncash charitable deductions, stating that any tax deduction of more than $500,000 requires a qualified appraisal conducted in accordance with generally accepted appraisal standards. The rules took effect as of August 1, 2018 ~ but appraisers still have plenty of questions.
Taxpayers who suffer economic loss due to a natural disaster can claim a casualty loss deduction on their federal income tax return. However, there have been some recent changes to limit deductions, as will be discussed. The same sort of principles may apply to litigation, if someone else caused the damage. Come learn from experienced appraisers who will share with us a recent case study on casualty loss involving a large custom home, a washed out road, and a mudslide. You need to register for the workshop to see how the damages were calculated and how this story ends.
Don’t miss this lively and informative 2-hour "virtual" workshop where we will explore new and upcoming changes to the IRS requirements, and how they might impact the appraisal community.
- What estates must file a return? What are the exemptions now? 2021?
- When are appraisals needed? “Step-up in basis”, 706, 709?
- Who does the hiring of appraisers for IRS matters?
- Client tax-saving opportunities from fractional interest discounts
- What are the consequences of filing an estate return without a “proper” appraisal?
- What happens in an audit? Tale of the client whacked with a huge penalty
- Avoiding audit scrutiny
- What are the relevant filing dates? When is my appraisal needed?
- Specific required wording in reports for the IRS
