News-Antique.com - Oct 19,2008 - "This latest issue of our highly-acclaimed, free "ACA Appraiser's Update" online newsletter is, once again, chock full of hard-to-find practical and how-to information for the personal property appraiser," said David Maloney, a certified appraiser and managing partner of Appraisal Course Associates. Maloney went on to say that the vast majority of personal property appraisers have no access to such information. For this reason, Maloney and his partner, Bill Novotny, ISA AM, CGA decided to publish "ACA Appraiser's Update." While primarily directed at appraisers, the eNewsletter is also useful to those who have a tangential interest in the profession such as estate liquidators, auctioneers, dealers, claims adjusters, attorneys, etc.
In this most recent issue, articles include "Cover Letter vs. Transmittal Letter vs. Cover Document," Appraisal Report Structure," "USPAP Q & A: Addressees, Clients, Intended Users," and a review of a recently-held IRS symposium for the personal property appraiser.
