How do you claim it on your taxes? When you get a receipt how do they determine the amount? How much do you need to be able to claim it??

It depends on the place I would call and ask

• ### Charity Navigator - Giving Calculator

Simply enter the amount you'd like to give and your federal tax bracket (see chart). The calculator will display the net cost of the donation and the tax savings.

Goodwill has a form you can use to write everything on and estimate it's value.I got 1 form and made copies.You keep the form with your receipt from them.

You can enter the # of items and the condition they are in....it gives you a value, which you can then import into TurboTax (if you use it)

I may have an answer for you soon, because I've got a pile of shoes I'm taking in to donate to Goodwill. :)
