Determining Used Goods Donation Value

  • 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, you can claim a tax deduction for clothing and household items that are in good condition.
  • The U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires you to value your donation when filing your return. Get started with our donation valuation guide, which features estimates for the most commonly donated items.
