Because we really don’t want to throw any usable junk into landfills, we are constantly looking for places that will accept items we find on jobs. In our search, we have found community center, shelters, synagogues and churches can help us redistribute household goods, toys, books, clothes, shoes, appliances, and much more! Please email us and let us know if you know of a donation center in our area.
A gift to a qualified charitable organization may entitle you to a charitable contribution deduction against your income tax if you itemize deduction. According to the Internal Revenue Service, a taxpayer can deduct the fair market value of clothing and household goods.
You may be thinking that a donation of more than $5,000 is a lot. But consider this, if you loose a loved one or someone moves into a nursing home and you, donate sheets and towels, furniture and kitchen utensils, that may be the most practical way of cleaning up. The total fair market value of a large donation like that could easily top $5,000. We obtain a tax receipt for you.
