I am working on an appraisal that requires my signature on IRS Form 8283. It is basically a form that says I am not disbarred by the IRS and I understand that artificially increasing the value to produce a greater tax benefit is a crime.

I asked the attorney who ordered the appraisal what the proper handling of the document was and he says it is a stand alone document that does not become part of the report and should not be included in the Addendum. I have always put just about everything in a self-contained report, so I'm not sure I agree. Does anyone else have a take on this issue?

Put a copy of the IRS form in the addendum to your report. Think of it as an additional appraisers certification.

Thanks for the replies. They match what I already thought about this.

That raises an additional question. If you are thinking of it as a certification (and now that I think about it, I believe it is) then shouldn't the signature on it be sealed? The only reason I have some question about that is that it is the IRS's form.
