Individuals with inherited property:
can check court records for probate values. If a trust or estate existed, taxpayers can contact the attorney who handled the trust. When no other records are available, people should check the county assessor's office for old records that might address the value of the property.
can research the current fair-market value for most vehicles. Resources are available online and at most libraries. These include Kelley's Blue Book, the National Automobile Dealers Association and Edmunds.
