7Is my donation tax deductible?

Yes, car, boat and RV donations made to bona fide, IRS verified charitable organizations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.  We have verified that all charities listed within this site are classified with the IRS as non-profit charitable organizations.  However, individual tax situations vary so please check with a tax professional to determine what if any tax benefit you may receive from a tax deductible donation.

8How does my tax deduction work?

The IRS allows you to claim a tax deduction of (a) the fair market value of your vehicle up to $500 or (b) if we sell the vehicle for more than $500 we will mail you a completed IRS tax form 1098-C with that value for your tax purposes.

 

For additional information, the IRS provides a Donor's Guide to Car Donations which sets forth the manner in which the IRS requires you to determine the value of your donated property.  Here is a link to IRS Publication 4303 — A Donor’s Guide to Car Donations.  You need Adobe Reader to view this file - click here to download the free Reader.

 

Please feel free to contact us with any further questions you may have.
