Donation Value Guide: How Much Are Your Donation Items Actually Worth?

Posted by ReStore Staff on Mar 28, 2019 9:52:23 AM

One of the benefits of making a donation to a nonprofit is the ability to claim a tax deduction for your donation. But how much can you claim? When donating used items, that can get tricky. Gently used items don't exactly have price tags on them anymore, and they lose value as soon as they are used, so you can only claim the resale value. 

On top of that, the IRS does not allow nonprofit organizations to set the value of your donation, the donor must assign that value. So, how much are your donation items actually worth? Here are reasonable ranges to use as guidelines for items commonly donated to the ReStore using our Donation Value Guide.

While you don’t need to submit a receipt when claiming your donation tax deductions on your tax return, you will need one if you are ever audited. And donations of $250 or more can only be claimed if you have an acknowledgment of your donation from the charity. So play it safe, and always ask for a receipt.
