Taxes and Your Donation
Federal law permits Goodwill® donors to claim tax deductions for many financial contributions and for donated clothing and household items in good, used condition or better.
If you’re unsure whether your item qualifies for a tax deduction, then consider this: if you would give it to a relative or friend, then the item is most likely in good condition and is appropriate to donate.
The U.S. Internal Revenue Service requires donors to value their items when filing their tax returns. To help guide you, we have compiled commonly donated items. Our valuation guide assumes the donated items are in good condition. Please note that these are estimated values.

At Goodwill Industries, we want people to give as much thought to where they donate their clothes as they would to where they donate their money. Donors should give to charities they know and trust and that will make the most of their donations.
Goodwill channels 82 percent of our revenues into job training programs that benefit hundreds of thousands of people each year.
