Donating unwanted or unused items is a great tax deduction if you file a Schedule A and itemize on you tax return. There are several organizations that will even pick up these donated items for you! Here are some easy-to-follow tips regarding these donations:
1) Utilize a donation guide that helps you estimate the values of your items.
2) List the name and address of the organization you are donating to, along with the date of each donation on the slip that is provided by the organization.
3) Take photographs of all the items donated. Print out these pictures and staple them to your list along with the slip from the organization.
