How To Donate A Vehicle

How To Donate A CarCar donation is one of the easiest and most beneficial ways to give back to the community you live in. Not only does it provide you with a convenient way to dispose of a vehicle, but when you donate it to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish, it also helps to grant the wish of a local child at the same time. Why deal with the hassle of selling or trading in a vehicle when someone else can take care of everything for you? Time and money can easily add up when you list ads in the paper, take time out of the day to meet with potential buyers, and haggle over a sales price. Car donation eliminates all of those inconveniences and also gets you a great tax deduction at tax time.

Whether your vehicle is no longer operational or you just want something new, the Wheels For Wishes car donation program can take your unwanted vehicle and turn it into so much more. Wheels For Wishes is a vehicle donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish and accepts most unwanted vehicles, such as cars, trucks, SUVs, RVs, motorcycles, or boats. Vehicles are either auctioned or recycled and earned proceeds from the sale of the vehicle benefit your local Make-A-Wish.

Vehicle donation to our charity is easy, hassle-free, and benefits a local child at the same time. Car donation is the best solution for getting rid of a vehicle in the fastest way possible!

It’s Easy To Get A Great Tax Deduction

How To Donate A VehicleOne of your questions about car donation may have to do with the tax deduction. Although tax deductions vary by the sale of the vehicle, we can assure you that you will be pleased with your tax deduction during next year’s tax season. Since we are an IRS 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit Organization, we are able to get you the most out of your automobile donation to charity.

While many charities may offer you other incentives, such as vacation packages to get you to donate a vehicle, Wheels For Wishes will get you the maximum possible tax deduction while also assuring you that earned proceeds from your vehicle donation will stay in your own community.

Wheels For Wishes car donation program is a local program and will benefit your local Make-A-Wish chapter. When you donate a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, it will either be auctioned off for a new owner to use, or it will be recycled and reused. If your donated vehicle is sold for less than $500, you can claim the fair market value of your vehicle, up to $500, or the amount the vehicle is sold for. Alternately, if your vehicle is sold for more than $500, you can claim the exact amount that the vehicle was sold for.

For more answers to your tax questions, please view our specific tax deduction information, or just give us a call and we will answer any questions you may have. We are here to help at any time you may need it.

After your car donation is made, we will mail out your 100% tax deductible receipt so you can save it and deduct it from your taxes at the end of the year. When you donate a vehicle by midnight on December 31, your donation will count for the same tax year. We like to make sure that you get your tax deduction in the fastest and easiest way possible.
