How Does A Certified Appraisal
Certification is now recognized by the Internal Revenue Service, which demands "Qualified Appraisers."
According to the I.R.S.:
"Appraisal designation. An appraiser will be treated as having earned an appraisal designation from a recognized professional appraiser organization within them meaning of section 170(f)(11)(e)(ii)(1) of the Pension Protection Act, 8/2006."
Beware of what are called "lay appraisers." If a person claiming to be an appraiser does not have credentials from a known and established professional appraiser organization, they will not be recognized as qualified to prepare and submit appraisals.
If an appraisal is legally challenged, the first issue brought up in court or in a hearing will be the appraiser's qualifications. If they do not have professional qualifications, the appraisal can be dismissed on the spot, sight unseen.
