Donating Household Clutter and Taking a Tax Deduction
Family Balance Sheet
JULY 19, 2012
While I love the instant cash that you can get from a yard sale, this year a tax deduction will have to do. It's been awhile since I've taken a tax deduction over having a yard sale, so I did a little research. 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. Do not include any of this evidence with your tax return."
