Q.1 Do I need more than on receipt for taxes if I donate clothing multiple times?
Yes. A donor is responsible for obtaining a written acknowledgment from a charity for any single contribution of $250 or more before the donor can claim a charitable contribution on his/her federal income tax return. To be deductible, clothing and household items donated to charity must be in good used condition or better. A clothing or household item for which a taxpayer claims a deduction of over $500 does not have to be in good used condition or better if the taxpayer includes a qualified appraisal of the item with the return. Household items include furniture, furnishings, electronics, appliances, and linens. Each time you make a donation you are entitled to receive a receipt, your tax return requires you to give the date of donation, items donated, value of donation and the method of value determination.
