According to the IRS:
Who Must File
You must file Form 8283 if the amount of your deduction for all noncash gifts is more than $500.
What is an 8283 form and do I need one to receive credit for my donation?
According the IRS, a person, or persons filing jointly, will use form 8283 to report information about non-cash charitable contributions. Scratching your head yet? The IRS just wants to make clear that an 8283 form should be used to report all donations you have made to charity, except donations of cash, credit card or check. If you have made donations of cash credit card or check, the IRS will still give you credit for them, but they would like you to use a different form.
An 8283 form would be used to receive a tax deduction for items like a boat donation, a car donation, or even household items you have donated to charity. If you have a current appraisal for your boat donation you should already have an 8283 IRS Non-Cash donation form in hand.
