Tax Benefits for Donating to Goodwill
Please see an important notice regarding vehicle donation to Goodwill. (PDF, opens in a new window)
When you donate to Goodwill at an Attended Donation Center or at a store you will be provided with a receipt for your tax-deductible contribution. The receipt will contain a general description of items donated. Example, two bags of clothing and miscellaneous household items. We suggest making an itemized list if you plan to claim a tax benefit. Goodwill will also provide a Fair Market Value sheet that you can use as a guide to determine the value of the items.
The assessment of donation value for tax purposes is the responsibility of the donor. Questions regarding a tax benefit should be directed to a tax professional or the IRS website (www.irs.gov) or by calling 1-800-829-1040.
