When donating jewelry to a charity, educational institution, museum, and other public institution, the donor may be entitled to a tax deduction. An appraisal is required if the value of the item or similar group of items exceeds $5,000. For donations over $5K, the IRS Form 8283 must be completed (section B, part I and III will require the input/signature of an appraiser) which we are happy to provide to your client. Let me know how I can help.
Based on our in-depth knowledge of jewelry, gemology and valuation, we are very happy to provide, at no cost to you, a single talk or a series of talks. We’re open to providing this to you be it in the evening or during the day. You just need to let us know on what subject you desire us to speak, and for how long. Q & A afterwards has proven to be very entertaining.
