Clothing donation of $500+ is not changing my refund

I have a clothing donation (with receipt) to The Salvation Army of $928. I have it entered in but it is not changing the amount I get refunded. This is my first year claiming a donation so I am honestly not sure if it should affect my refund or not. Thanks

Clothing donation of $500+ is not changing my refund

Unfortunately, if that is your only deduction, it won't change your refund.  In order for itemized deductions to impact your refund, you must have more than $6,300 if filing single ($12,600 if filing jointly).  The IRS offers you either the $6,300 or the total of all your itemized deductions, whichever is greater.
