Tips and Advantages
Items must be in good condition in order to claim a tax deduction. Donating clothing, shoes, housewares, and small size furniture to SAMU First Response helps us in our mission to provide humanitarian assistance.
Donations are also an easy way to get a tax deduction because SAMU First Response is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
But before you donate, there are some important things you need to know. Per IRS Publication 561, all nonprofit organizations are prohibited from assigning values to material donations. That means it is the donor’s responsibility to determine the item’s fair market value.
We suggest you to consult a tax accountant anytime you have questions about your claim.
