Q. Is my vehicle donation tax deductible?
A. Donations to a non-profit organization or charity that is classified under 501(c)[3] are often tax deductible. If the charity you designate to is classified as such, the donations made to us may be utilized as a tax write-off, allowing you a car donation tax break. Everyone’s tax situation is different, so consult with your tax professional to determine how you may benefit.

Q. How much will my tax write-off be? (And how do I determine the value of my donation for a possible IRS car donation tax break and tax write-off purposes?)
The amount that is tax deductible is the sale amount of the vehicle. See what Cars for charity does with your car to get a higher sales price (on average) than other car donation programs.

For more information on tax write-offs, see the IRS information on vehicle donations. Everyone’s tax
situation is different, so consult with your tax professional to determine how you can benefit.

Q. What does Cars for Charity do with my car?
A. We have sales locations where we evaluate the cars. When it is cost-effective, we make major or minor mechanical or body repairs, and then we detail the cars and sell them on the retail market. We don’t just use auction houses to sell the donated vehicles, because we want to maximize the financial assistance to the charities and provide you the donor the best tax write-off you can take. Cars for Charity strives to have the highest return on the sale of the donated vehicles.
