If your gift has an apparent value of $5,000 or more, the IRS requires an appraisal and IRS Form 8283 from the donor, if you plan to seek a tax deduction. Exceptions included: 1) closely-held stock, which must be appraised only if the apparent value is $10,000 or more; 2) gifts of service; 3) gifts of out-of-pocket expenses; and 4) limited use of private property.
