Why Choose a Charitable Appraisal?

A charitable appraisal serves as a valuable tool for determining the accurate worth of your assets, providing you with a comprehensive assessment. We specialize in appraising a wide range of items, including clothing, furniture, electronics, antiques, heirlooms, and collectibles. Our appraisal reports are meticulously crafted and adhere to the highest industry standards, such as the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). These USPAP-compliant reports are recognized for various legal and financial requirements, including those related to charitable donation deductions.

The Importance of a Charitable Appraisal

For those considering donating an individual item or a group of items valued at $5,000 or more, a professional appraisal is mandatory to claim the donation on your taxes. After receiving the written appraisal, you have a 60-day window to complete the donation, ensuring compliance with IRS regulations. If you’ve already donated the items and didn’t have an appraisal done we still might be able to help you. Give us a call to discuss.

Large-Scale Estate Donations

Beyond individual donations, we specialize in helping you assess and donate entire estates. This includes not only common items like clothing and furniture but also demo-appraisals and FF& E appraisals which focus on fixtures, appliances, cabinets, and other assets typically associated with estate clear-outs. We collaborate with builders, contractors, and others seeking to efficiently clear house contents through donations.

The Financial Wisdom of Donation

While the primary motive may or may not be behind charitable donations' profitability, our professional appraisal services often make excellent financial sense. Many clients discover that fair-market appraisals enable them to claim more substantial deductions compared to what they might receive through mass liquidation.

The following information is to provide some insight.  We are not your CPA or accountant and we encourage you to always check with your trusted financial expert before making any financial decisions as we are not providing financial advice in any way. With that being said, below is an explanation of the potential benefits one may consider, as well as a table that explains the potential tax savings versus the cost of a Tax Donation Appraisal in a hypothetical scenario.

The Significance of Appraisals for Tax Deductions

For items valued over $5,000, the IRS mandates a qualified appraisal to claim a tax deduction. Such appraisals validate your donation's fair market value, ensuring compliance and maximizing tax benefits.

Estimating Your Potential Tax Savings

Your tax savings from charitable donations depend on the appraised value of the items and your tax bracket. Especially for those in higher tax brackets, donating valuable items can lead to considerable tax savings, even after accounting for appraisal costs.

Detailed Examples of Potential Tax Savings

Consider donating 10 items, with our team appraising them within an estimated 5 to 10 hours. Below, we provide examples of potential tax savings for different donation values for individuals in the 37% tax bracket, including the estimated appraisal costs:

  • Low Valuation Range ($5,000 to $14,000 total donation value):
    • Tax Savings Before Appraisal Costs: $1,850.00 - $5,180.00
    • Estimated Appraisal Cost (5-10 hours): $1,125 - $2,250
    • Net Benefit (after appraisal costs): $725.00 - $2,930.00
  • High Valuation Range ($15,000 to $29,000 total donation value):
    • Tax Savings Before Appraisal Costs: $5,550.00 - $10,730.00
    • Estimated Appraisal Cost (5-10 hours): $1,125 - $2,250
    • Net Benefit (after appraisal costs): $4,300.00 - $8,605.00

Typically, from start to finish, you could see 30 minutes to an hour per item. To be clear, this is for a unique item valued at $100 or more. If the value is lower than that, less information is required. For instance, items found in the kitchen, tools, or basic home decor can be lotted or batched together for a total value and this can speed things up a bit. This is an IRS requirement that we follow for a formal report process.

The other side of that is some items could be longer than an hour, for example, 1877 Russian enamelware with a specific silversmith mark, as research to find current market comps could require more time.

These scenarios illustrate how the appraisal costs are factored into the overall financial benefits of your donation, highlighting the net benefits after such costs.

Why Our Appraisal Services Stand Out

Our team is dedicated to delivering IRS-compliant appraisals that ensure you leverage the full tax advantages of your charitable donations. Our hourly billing model is designed to be cost-effective, ensuring you receive value-aligned service.


Charitable donations offer a pathway to support worthy causes while receiving tax benefits. Our appraisal services are tailored to ensure you navigate this process with confidence, fully understanding the impact of appraisal costs on your net benefits.
