What is Apprasial and how do I get one

You must find a qualified appraiser who does the appraisal at the time of the donation.

@jhayes077 You've published copies of your documentation from ItsDeductible.  This is a public forum; you may not wish to post that here.  I suggest that you delete the PDFs of these documents.

Adding to the answer offered by @SweetieJean, see the TurboTax FAQ linked below explaining why you would need an appraisal (valuation of the items donated performed by a licensed appraiser) at the time of the donation.

Additionally, only your 2017 donations can be used as deductions on your 2017 return.  If you want to use the 2016 donations, you'll need to amend your 2016 return.

What the heck?!  I went through Edit to remove them and took them away--I see that they are still showing up top--but they are not down at the bottom where they can be removed!  But when you click them all you get now is computer gibberish.

@xmasbaby0  I don't see them at the top any longer.  I deleted by editing and deleting at the bottom (like you apparently did).  Maybe refresh your screen?

This was weird--I was still seeing them after refreshing a couple of times...but at least now they are gone.
