Pengarang   : Michael R. Devitt             

Imprint          : New Jersey: John Wiley & Sons, 2018 

Mukasurat    : 282   


Qualified Appraisers and Qualified Appraisals provides clarification on complex IRS guidelines and offers solutions and insight that can help appraisers adhere to the latest Treasury Regulations concerning appraisals submitted in tax matters. From the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice to IRS regulations, this book explores the body of law that has arisen around the production of “qualified appraisals” that the government and courts will accept. The discussion covers estate, gift, charitable contribution, income taxes, and more, with expert guidance on the interpretation and application of complex regulations. As appraisers often are called upon to provide expert testimony in court, this book shares effective methods including the novel “hot-tubbing” technique that eliminates the appearance of bias in favour of a less-adversarial discussion. Cases are dissected as they relate to application of existing appraisal laws, and the companion website features checklists, references, and additional cases as they become available.

The IRS regulations on qualified appraisers and qualified appraisals have sparked a storm of controversy and have raised more questions than they have answered. This book acknowledges the problems and offers solutions to help appraisers produce work the IRS and courts will accept.

  • Understand the laws surrounding “qualified appraisals” and “qualified appraisers”;
  • Gain insight on testifying as an expert, including new techniques;
  • Explore solutions to common issues the IRS raises with respect to qualified appraisals and qualified appraisers; and
  • Examine cases that illustrate the nuances of appraisal law application.

For an appraisal to satisfy the government, an appraisal must be performed by a “qualified appraiser” specific for the type of property in question.

Changing Built

Pengarang   : David Lorenz             

Imprint          : New Jersey:  John Wiley & Sons, 2018 

Mukasurat    : 234  

Sinopsis :

A new framework for understanding the underpinnings of real estate property value and the role it plays in the larger economy.

Value in a Changing Built Environment examines the professional foundations on which the valuation exercise and the valuation profession rest. Written by noted experts in the field, the book addresses the often-limited understanding of the concept of property value by explaining the intrinsic linkages between economic, environmental, social, and cultural measures and components of property value. The book offers a framework that paves the way towards a more holistic approach to property value.

Value in a Changing Built Environment unwraps many of the traditional assumptions that have underpinned market participants' decision making over the last few decades. The authors explore the concept that a blindfold application of valuation theories and approaches adopted from finance is unlikely to be able to cope with the nature of property as an economic and public good.
