Donate Your Electronics To Charity Today
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, about 2.37 million tons of e-waste ended up in landfills in 2009. And unfortunately, many of the electronic gadgets dumped in landfills are still usable.
If you’re like me, your old devices end up sitting in a closet or storage space every time you upgrade to a new computer, cellphone, TV, or drone. However, instead of letting the old electronics sit there collecting dust – or tossing them into the trash – consider donating them.You can see your obsolete items go to a good cause and gain a new life, and furthermore, if you donate your unwanted electronics, you can receive a tax deduction for charitable contributions. You’ll have to itemize your taxes, but you can deduct the fair market value of any electronic device you give to charity, as well as any boat, vehicle, real estate, or collectibles.Donating your old electronics with Giving Center will free up storage space in your house and help out a worthy cause at the same time. We’ll make sure you get a donation receipt and send you the appropriate tax documentation. You’ll need to keep the receipt for your tax records when you file for a deduction. You may also want to have them handy in case of a tax audit.
