Taxes and Your Donations

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 requires you to value your donation when filing your return.
