Donating Household Clutter and Taking a Tax Deduction
Family Balance Sheet
JULY 19, 2012
Unfortunately not everything in your home is considered a tax deduction if donated. There are rules to follow when taking a tax deduction for your donated items. Household items that can be deducted if donated are furniture and furnishings, electronics, appliances, linens, and other similar items. Household items NOT included would be food, paintings, antiques, other objects of art, jewelry, gems, and collections. Every year, I have a yard sale.
