Recently in my newspaper was a letter, to a financial expert that went something like this:

"We utilized a book about charitable contributions called _______________ by __________ to value some clothing and other donations. Now we are worried that if we are audited the values would be questioned."

The response was:

"Don't worry! The ___________ book is also used by the IRS! "

Can anyone fill in the blanks?

I have looked at Amazon, B&N, even called my local bookstore. I cannot seem to find a book like this. All I have been able to find are CPA texts - for $150.

We donate a fair amount of stuff and really haven't bothered with deducting it. Would like to start doing so!

Thanks for the help. NewFool Bob.
