Please complete the brief form below to provide us with the information we need to produce an official letter acknowledging your in-kind donation for your tax filing purposes. When you click the “Submit” button, you will immediately receive an email confirming receipt of your form. You can expect to receive the official acknowledgement letter from our Development Office within two to three weeks.

To ensure that you have the most up-to-date and accurate information, donors should always consult a tax advisor prior to claiming deductions for charitable donations of property. For more about determining the value of donated goods, see IRS Publication 561.

Per IRS regulations at the time this form was updated, please note that U.S. taxpayers cannot claim a deduction for clothing unless the clothing is in good used condition or better. And as with all in-kind items donated, the valuation of clothes needs to reflect their current fair market value (i.e., what a thrift or consignment store would pay), rather than what you originally paid for them.

If you are seeking to claim a deduction for a contribution of items equal to or greater than $250 in value, it is especially important to itemize your donated items on the form below.

If you are seeking to claim a deduction for contributions of property exceeding $500 in total value, you’ll need to file form 8283 (Non-cash Charitable Contributions) with the IRS in addition to the donation acknowledgement letter you will receive from Samaritan.

In order to claim a deduction for a single item that exceeds $500 in value and is not in good used condition or better, or in order to claim a deduction for a group of similar items that equal or exceed $5,000 in value, the donor must file a both a qualified appraisal and form 8283 with the IRS, in addition to the donation acknowledgement letter.

All values assigned to donations by the donor will be considered the donor’s estimate.
