IRS: Fair Market Value appraisals can be used for the IRS when considering estate planning, charitable donations, and non-monetary gifts.

Insurance: Up-to-date appraisals can ensure that insurance premiums properly reflect changes in artwork values. Individual works may require additional or reduced coverage. Coverage adjustments could result in significant savings.
