Vehicle donations made to our charities are tax deductible. We have also verified each IRS 501c (3) designation. The best practice is to consult with a tax professional on how to maximize your tax deduction since every car donation and tax situation is unique. In general, the IRS limits the tax deduction to the gross proceeds from the sale of the car, truck, or other vehicle. Charitable contributions must be itemized on Schedule A of Form 1040 to qualify. If the gross proceeds exceed $500, Form 1098C “Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes” and Form 8283 "Noncash Charitable Contributions", must also be completed and attached.  Forms 1098C and 8283 are required to be provided to the donor within 30 days of the sale of the vehicle.

To learn more on what the donors’ responsibilities are prior to making a car donation, please consult the "Donor´s Guide to Vehicle Donations" found in IRS Publication 4303. The file may be read with Adobe Reader.
