The North Carolina Western Chapter of the American Society of Appraisers will feature the Fair Market Value Concepts: Appraisals for Federal Tax Calculations course on April 12-13, 2019 in Charlotte, NC.

This two-day course was developed to acquaint beginning appraisers and reacquaint experienced ones with the requirements of preparing appraisals for intended uses that warrant an opinion of Fair Market Value for taxation. The seminar looks at the various definitions of Fair Market Value (from the Code of Federal Regulations), the definitions of qualified appraiser and qualified appraisal, and the meaning of language such as “unrelated use” and “recapture.” In addition, it examines the suggested format that has been provided by the IRS Art Appraisal Services office. The seminar also covers the new Tax regulations--with a specific focus on charitable contributions--that went into effect on January 1, 2019. Recent important precedent-setting court cases will be reviewed.

Seminar is open to members in all disciplines and qualifies for 16 CEUs.

Manuals are provided and include several tax court cases that will be discussed in the seminar. There will be a short quiz at the end of the second day.

For the purpose of event planning – logistics, flights, food and manuals – please register by March 29, 2019.

Tuition for this course includes the Manual, snacks and lunch on both days.
Out-of-Town participants: We will be planning a Friday Evening Activity and dinner for those who may be interested.
