According to the Internal Revenue Service, fair market value is "the price that a property would sell for on the open market.  It's the price that would be agreed on between a willing buyer and a willing seller, with neither being required to act, and both having reasonable knowledge of the relevant fact."  Unfortunately, there is no single formula to determine fair market value.  All relevant facts, such as the desirability, use and scarcity of the property donated, must be considered.

Figure the Value of your Donation

Fair market value can be assessed by judging these items against
comparable items at used or second-hand stores,
which is usually far below the
price paid for these items when they were new.

Since there isn't a uniform formula for determining fair market value,
below are several publications available online.

These guides are informational only
and provided as a convenience for donors.
Prices are only estimated values.
