Taxes and Your Donations
Donors are responsible for valuing their donations. You may be able to deduct the value of your donations if you choose to itemize them on your taxes. For any advice regarding the preparation of your taxes, please consult a reputable tax advisor.
When you drop off your donations at Goodwill, you’ll receive a receipt from a donation attendant. Hang on to this receipt. At the end of the year, if you itemize deductions on your taxes, you can claim a tax deduction for clothing and household items that are in good condition.
The U.S. Internal Revenue Service requires you to value your donation when filing your return. To get started, download our donation valuation guide, which features estimates for the most commonly donated items.
