Tax Deductions

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.  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 in a Donation Value Guide below. (Please Note: Our valuation guide assumes the donated items are in good condition and that these are estimated values.)

No, Thank You:

Sometimes we may decline a donation if in our judgment it is hazardous or in non-saleable condition. Severely damaged or soiled items cannot be sold and simply cost us money to dispose of. Non-functioning items such as appliances cost us more to transport and repair than they can be sold for in our stores.  We are unable to accept the following items:

  • Large Appliances: Refrigerators, Stoves, etc. (Except at our Three Rivers Store)
  • Halogen floor lamps
  • Hazardous household chemicals,paint, etc.
  • Food and Perishable Products

  • Mattresses
  • Metal bed springs
  • Tires, Car Batteries
