Estate Appraisal Services
Aardvark also provides appraisals for estates and executors. We perform estate tax liability appraisals for individuals in the North Georgia, and Atlanta metropolitan area, as well as for the finest Atlanta area law firms and accounting firms. We provide you with a formal written document ready to be submitted with form 706 for the IRS. Quite often, we are also hired by firms from other states to help determine values for their clients' estate in Georgia for estate tax liability.
The job of an estate executor is difficult and full of risks. Let us take this burden off your shoulders. Let Aardvark be your advisor to verify that your decisions are correct and fair.
Art Appraisal Services
Aardvark provides you with a formal written appraisal for court or tax purposes. We can assist in the division of property and evaluate sentimental attachments objectively. Just because two paintings have the same value today, it doesn't mean that one is appreciating in value while the other is depreciating. We can make it easier for you to choose between items.
We'll use the appraisal valuation method that's best for you. We have over a decade of experience and we will work with you and your financial and tax advisors. We offer complete art and antique appraisal services.
Antique Appraisal Services
The antique field is extremely large. It runs from Pre-Columbian art, to Louis XIV furniture, autographs, rare Limoge porcelain china to your grandmother's silver tea set. No singular person can possibly know all these vast fields. This underscores the importance for you to hire a full-service professional appraisal firm like Aardvark Antiques. We can visit your home or office, carefully inventory your items, as well as research each item that is not readily identifiable.
Many antique appraisers own shops and use antique appraisals as a method to get into your home and buy cheaply from you. Never trust an antique appraiser with two agendas. Always hire an independent appraiser who represents you, not their antique shop or auction firm when you buy antiques or sell antiques. Here at Aardvark Antiques, we do not buy what we appraise.
Appraisals For Museum Charitable Tax Deductible Donations
The tax advantages of museum and charitable donations can be considerable and without risk, if IRS rules and formats are strictly followed. Any appraiser can put values on a piece of paper, but are you willing to accept the consequences if they are wrong? We produce legal appraisals that are accepted by the IRS and will collaborate with your tax advisor to determine if a donation is financially practical. We are here to help preserve and maximize your assets.
Along with our certified appraisals, we can recommend to you IRS-approved recipients for your art. We have extensive museum contacts. Atlanta and North Georgia individuals, companies, and charitable organizations have used us for over a decade!
In case of an audit, we can assist in your defense and provide first class, professional court testimony. We are a complete appraisal service.
Asset & Divorce Appraisal Services
Aardvark provides you with a court-certified professional inventory and appraisal of your tangible assets. These can be used for court purposes or to ease the division of property. We can advise which items are best retained and which to relinquish. Just because two pieces of antique furniture have the same value today, it doesn't mean it will be the same five years from now. We do divorce and asset appraisals for the Atlanta and North Georgia area.
During this difficult time, decisions can be hard to make. Sentimental attachments and tremendous stress cloud good judgment. We can listen; we can help. We can also come to court with you, be at your side during negotiations, and even tell you how to make our fee and your attorney's tax deductible. We offer unbiased solutions with complete confidence.
