What the IRS says about donating non cash items....

Source: www.irs.gov

When claiming a deduction on your taxes, the donation must have been donated to a charitable organization.  The deduction amount is determined by the item's Fair Market Value.  When determining the Fair Market Value of your donated items, the IRS recommends to assess the value based upon what a similar item would sell for in the exact same condition. Example:  Sally purchased a shirt from a major department store two years ago for $120.  Sally donated the shirt to a thrift store.  The average price of used shirts is $6, no matter the brand.  The Fair Market Value for her donation is $6.  Sally can deduct $6 from her tax liability. Read IRS Publication 561 for more information.
