INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Qualified Appraiser'

Qualified appraisers are required by the IRS to appraise any piece of property valued at $5,000 or more on which a taxpayer requests a tax deduction. Because qualified appraisers are more experienced and knowledgeable about a particular type of property, the IRS uses them in order to ensure that the taxpayer is not overstating the value of the donated property. A qualified appraiser must perform an appraisal based on generally accepted appraisal standards.
