Value of land

We sold some minerals to Antero this year. We need to find out what the value was in 1999 when we inherited the minerals so we can deduct that from our capital gains tax. Does anyone know of someone who can do that kind of work? Thanks.

There is at least one person who belongs to that group that is an appraiser in WV. I met her at NARO National Convention last year in Pittsburgh.

The estate paperwork on file at the courthouse may have a value for 1999 already. You could also look at the 1999 tax tickets if the mineral value is there. You would divide the tax ticket value by 0.6 to get the actual appraisal value.
