Hi all,

My husband and I just completed a yard sale, and want to donate the unsold items to charity. We will keep our receipts, and no donation will be more than $250. My understanding is that we can take up to a $500 deduction for this on our tax return. Question -- is that $500 per person, or $500 total?

Thanks for any help, and apologies if this has been asked before.

Regards,

Barbara
