We ask that individuals keep track of the items they donate. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide replacement donation receipts.
Donations to Goodwill are tax deductible; however, Goodwill is prohibited from placing a value on your contribution. IRS regulations require that the donor be the one to determine the "fair market" value of the donation using purchase receipts or some method of calculating the value at resale (like online auction sites) . This fair market value is what you would be able to obtain for the item(s) if you sold them yourself, or they were sold in a thrift store or consignment shop. Please note that clothing loses value dramatically at the time of original purchase, similar to a car, so the amount you can deduct is often far less than you paid. If your contribution is valued at $250 or more, you must retain your donation receipt. Please talk with your tax preparer for more details.
You will need an independent appraisal and an IRS form 8283 if you are claiming a donation of $500 or more. If you'd like to obtain independent appraisals for items you believe to be valued over $500, visit: http://www.appraisalfoundation.org/.
We currently do not offer home pickups. However, we have partnered with a third party hauling company (College Hunks Hauling Junk) for a PAID 48 hour priority pick-up service. For more information, visit http://www.collegehunkshaulingjunk.com/donation-pickup/paid-home-pickup/goodwill#axzz2FWJmiiHT.
Though we cannot accept vehicles at our retail stores, Goodwill currently has a partnership with Vehicles for Change. For more information, visit www.vehiclesforchange.org/.
