Estate Administration Tax or "Probate Fees"
Many clients are unaware that the personal property of an estate must be inventoried and valued during the probate process and taxes are to be paid on their value. Legislation was introduced January 2015 outlining a new procedure called an "Estate Tax Return." Our professional appraisers will provide you with a detailed, itemized list and a corresponding value for each item in the estate given in the form of a professional, written report. Do not pay more than you have to and avoid potential re-assessment of the value of the deceased's estate with a neutral and professional appraisal report.
Equitable distribution should be the main goal of divorce settlements. A professional appraiser should be hired when it comes down to furniture, art, antiques, collectibles, and other household items, to ensure fair distribution. By having a neutral, unbiased, and professional opinion of value the distribution process could become relatively quick and painless.
A prenuptial agreement is an agreement between two people that deals with the financial consequences of their relationship ending.

Antiques, fine art, jewelry, and other rare collectibles can be extremely expensive to replace. Most people rely on their homeowners insurance for protection against losses to these items. Unfortunately, many are unaware that their policies usually exclude these from coverage. You should have these items appraised by a professional and certified appraiser to ensure proper coverage.
