Thanks for your question. My name is***** will be a pleasure to help you. I will ask you to complete the star rating and payment process after I have completed the question for you.

Unfortunately this website is not set up to do the type of tax assessment valuation you would need to conform to the prescribed process, which is set down by the IRS. You would generally need to have a 'hands on' type inspection completed by an assessor approved to do this type of work.

If you would like me to continue with the appraisal we can do here, to give you a retail type valuation as a guide before, or if, you still need to obtain the one for tax purposes, could you tell me if this piano has been regularly tuned.
