There is a book published out there that gives the fiar prices of donateable items...I can't recall the title or author. You might try some web searchesHere's a website for the book http://www.taxsave.com/I have to agree with Selphiras on the value thing. Technically if you donate to goodwill and because they sell their items if all their paperbacks for a dime your paperbook is worth a dime. If they sell them for a nickel they are worth a nickel. If you donate to an agency that doesn't sell the goods then you have a little more room to determine the value. Honestly it use to amaze me how much people claimed their items were worth back when I use to work for a non profit. It got to the point where our reciepts stated such and such item which the donor values at $XXX amount and then some legalease basically stating that the non profit did not take responsiblity for placing a value on any item donated to them It doesn't matter if you paid $100 for those black shoes and wore them once to a wedding, if goodwill sells all used shoes for $5 that's their value :-)
