All too often, people do not fully acknowledge the importance in having an intricate appraisal report produced in support of the numbers being used in general documents filed with the IRS.

An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is necessary to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. Such a report will definitely demonstrate to the MO agencies that the numbers used are well-founded and substantiated.

The August Group Inc. guarantees an well-founded appraisal report, which will give an executor accurate facts and numbers that will meet IRS and state agency requirements. You need not worry over anything, because The August Group Inc. will be there to back up our appraisals if they are ever challenged.

One of the most essential requirements in an appraisal is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in an exhaustive explanation as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion.
