If you itemize your taxes (those who put clothing into the box) take a photo of the items in bulk, like open boxes, showing what is in it. I box up like women's sweaters, tops. Men's jeans/shirts. Your tax person can tell you if your contribution can be used. Dropping off at a site, you should get a slip of paper from them for taxes. Goodwill does this. The collector cannot take the credit for clothing given to them to them as donations to get the credit. They may be able to use what labor they hire to get the items from A to B. Again, tax forms will be filled out and verified.
No, and if anyone on here is connected to the IRS in the Austin area, you can probably betcha they'll be doing drop box host audits real soon. :)
