The following is a list of average prices to use to calculate the charitable deduction for donated clothing items. New or expensive “designer” clothing would be priced higher, and damaged, out-of-date, or lower quality clothing would be less. This list is to offer you GUIDANCE ONLY. There are, of course, pricing variables such as age of the item, quality, style, cleanliness, and value when it was new.
