We know that in this time of loss, acquiring an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. Due to this, now and then the time of death differs from the date the appraisal is needed. Our company is accustomed to the procedures and requirements necessary to produce a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date of death.

Most people don't realize that the IRS needs information filed to explain the numbers involved in estate sales.

Having a professional report from Tierney Appraisals gives the executor solid facts and figures to work with in meeting IRS and MA state agency requirements. There's no need to have anything but peace of mind when getting a report from us, because we will support it no matter what.
