 Does anyone know the website with the list of donation goods and how much you can write them off for?

I have it in my HR Block tax program but I would have to open the return all up and I couldnt print the list off last week so I doubt I can this week.

I have been doing google searchs to find this list and I cant seem to just find a basic list of goods and the cost that I can write them off.

It should be on the receipt from the organization you donated to.

I googled it, lol. You have to estimate what it is and as long as its under $500 you dont have to itemize everything.

 Yeah we never stay under the $500, its not a huge deal HR Block has those list everytime we do the taxes I was just hoping for a print out one that we can keep track of the cost of what we are donating so far. This year we are getting rid of so much including over half of our gaming systems, couches, beds, desks, clothes, half our kitchen is going.

You're welcome. I use turbo tax and that is the site they have in their program. It makes keeping track so much easier!
