What’s a Qualified and Ethical Appraiser?

  • An individual who has earned an appraisal designation from a recognized professional appraiser organization or has met certain education and experience requirements (required for IRS appraisals).
  • Opinion of value is unbiased and not contingent on any financial outcomes. WE DO NOT BUY APPRAISED ITEMS.
  • The individual regularly prepares appraisals for which he or she is paid.
  • The individual has not been prohibited from practicing before the IRS under section 330(c) of title 31 of the United States Code at any time during the 3-year period ending on the date of the appraisal.
  • The individual is not an excluded individual. (The individual is a 3rd-party independent appraiser that has no connection to the item, donor or donee.)
