Sarah and her assistant recently “unearthed” 11 boxes of books, totaling 189
titles, from her Client’s storage room. Sarah then photographed each antique
and leather bound book for her New York book dealer’s careful evaluation.
Alas, while the books looked as if they could be valuable, this was a classic case
of, “You can’t judge a book by its cover.”
Result: A sizable tax deduction for her Client (and 11 boxes of unwanted books
out of her Client’s storage room, and life!).
Her Client said:
“Sarah was such a big help in clearing this clutter. We had been paying to store
these books for some time because we weren’t sure of their value. Sarah
obtained an expert valuation for us quickly. Although it was disappointing to find
out that they didn’t have much value after all, it was great to get rid of them
without reservations or regrets.”
