Donation Value Guide and Receipts

Your donation may be tax-deductible.  Via Thrift Stores will provide a receipt upon request or you can download one that meets the IRS-written substantiation requirements for donations accepted at Via Thrift Stores.  IRS code requires the donor to list the condition of items (fair, good, like new, new, etc.) and the estimated value.  Items donated must be in “Good” condition to receive a tax deduction.

When you donate property to Via Thrift Stores, for tax purposes, you must prove that the donation was made and establish how much the donated property was worth at the time of contribution.  Via Thrift Stores cannot place a value on the goods, determining the fair market value of a gift of property remains the responsibility of the donor.  For IRS guidelines please see IRS Publication 561 – Determining the Value of Donated Property.

Below is a listing of an average estimated price of items in good condition for sale in Via Thrift Stores.  This list is for your guidance only in determining value of your items.
