Tax Appraised Value

Definition of "Tax-appraised value"

Estimate of an asset that is used to determine tax obligations. It is usually in the interest of the owner to have a low value put on a piece of property for tax purposes. However, the owner sometimes wants the same property to carry a higher appraisal value for insurance purposes so that losses can be easily recovered if the property is lost or damaged.
