April recommends ItsDeductible┬« External Link to figure the value of your donations for your itemized deductions. If you provide the following information for each donation, she will prepare a detailed receipt with values for your records (this will cost more as it is very time consuming). You can also get donation values by using the Salvation Army donation guide External Link or the Goodwill receipt builder External Link.

Name of charity
Date of donation
Detailed list of items including:
Brief description (ie: women’s dress blouse; men’s jeans; child’s pajamas)
Condition (Good or Fair, note that “Poor” is no longer an option)
Quantity of each
