Donation Appraisals

Art Appraisals for Donation

Charitable Contribution Appraisal – A non-cash contribution for tax credit purposes

When a work of art with a value over $5000.00 is to be donated to a non-profit 501(c)3 cultural institution (ie. museum), a charitable contribution appraisal is required by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service for tax purposes. This appraisal will provide information including the documentation of the appropriateness of the donation, thereby substantiating the tax deduction. The document is prepared to conform to IRS requirements and to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
