The procedure generally applies to an item of art that has been appraised at $50,000 or more. The appraisal submitted must meet specific substantiation requirements. A user fee is charged for each request. The current fees for a Statement of Value are $5,400 for one to three items and $270 for each additional item. See Revenue Procedure 2013-01.
