Appraisal & Donation

In most cases, owners then have their horse appraised. This is entirely for the owner's benefit (and at their expense), but most accountants recommend it. An appraisal represents an official document that is used supporting evidence of the donation for the IRS. We are happy to handle showing the horse to the appraiser.  If the donor does not get the appraisal done for their horse, the value placed on the horse will be less than $5,000.00.
The Intent to Donate form along with a copy of the official appraisal will be sent to our Office of Advancement. Once processed the Office of Advancement sends the owner a letter acknowledging their gift as well as IRS Form 8283 to use for their taxes. 

If you have any concerns about completing any of the paperwork or have any questions, please contact James F. Morris, Director of Riding, at (434) 432-5500.
