Utah Appraisers List Now Available

Posted on September 10, 2010 by


For years Utah’s historical archives, special collections, and museums (specifically 501(c)(3) charitable institutions), have needed a common listing of professional appraisers, who have presented themselves as tax appraisers of historical and artistic materials. To meet this need, the Utah Manuscripts Association has worked to compile a list of appraisers in the region for institutional reference.

When using the list, please note the following:

  1. Donors seeking appraisals for tax purposes are advised to seek professional tax and legal counsel as they independently select an appraiser.
  2. Donors should secure a 501(c)(3) institution’s commitment to accept a donation before obtaining the services of an appraiser, if the donation includes an intended tax benefit.
  3. No preference or claim of certification is implied by the inclusion of individuals or companies in this list.
  4. All appraisers listed have asked to be, or have granted permission to be, included on this list.
  5. Compliance with the U.S. Tax Code “Appraisal Requirements” as listed in the IRS Instructions for Form 8283 (http://www.irs.gov/instructions/i8283/ch02.html) has not been determined by the Utah Manuscript Association.
