At some point in life, situations may occur that are unforeseen and require you to prove the value of your agricultural equipment or livestock. This is when you need a professional agricultural appraiser who is knowledgeable and can advise you of the proper process and procedures.
Did you know that the IRS and Revenue Canada requires a qualified appraisal to take a tax deduction greater than $5,000 on a donated horse? Did you know that an insurance company may decline to write a policy for the value you feel your animal is worth unless you have a qualified appraisal to substantiate that valuation? Did you know that courts can order a qualified appraisal in many types of legal proceedings, including bankruptcies and divorces?
