Question: Help! I’m appraising artwork for estate tax purposes. The artist is not returning my calls. He is his own market.

However, an appraiser must not render appraisal services in a careless or negligent manner. This Rule requires an appraiser to use due diligence and due care. (USPAP 2020-2021, lines 301-303)
