an act or instance of appraising; especially : a valuation of property by the estimate of an authorized person
What is an appraisal?
An appraisal provided by Mahn Miller Collective Inc. is a document that is compliant with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). This document is required when:
- you donate property to a 501c3 charity for which you would like to get a tax deduction
- when you need to insure your property
- for asset separation in cases of divorce
- for estates, specifically: estate planning, estate tax, probate, or for a trust inventory.
Donation is a wonderful way to share and protect the legacy of your item. By placing historic property in the hands of a museum or archive you share in educating and preserving history. By getting an appraisal and working with your accountant you could also receive a tax benefit for your donation.
Whether you have built a large collection or purchased a single item you need to protect your investment with insurance. Your insurance company will require an appraisal from an appraiser qualified to value your items.
Estates and Asset Separation
Appraisals are often required at times of loss or stress. Mahn Miller Collective Inc. offers compassionate assistance whether your appraisal is for matters of estates or in cases of divorce.
