Non-Cash Donation Worksheet

You save tax dollars when you maximize your charitable deductions. How much can you deduct for the used goods you give to charity? The IRS allows you to deduct up to the fair market value of an item--that is, the price it would sell for in a thrift shop. The quality of the item when new, as well as its age and present condition, must be taken into account and may make the item worth more or less. So YOU think a fair non-cash charitable contribution for the old blue jeans that you’ve mysteriously outgrown should be worth at least half of the $80 that you paid for them. THINK AGAIN. If you don’t want to scout out thrift stores and garage sales to determine the fair market value of men’s, ladies’, and children’s clothing; tools and garden equipment; sporting goods; and furniture/appliances, we have some guidelines for you. The list is yours, with our compliments. CLICK HERE or stop by the office and pick one up--"Non-Cash Donations Worksheet." (Valuation ranges in worksheet obtained from Salvation Army Website)
