What You Need To Know About Your Tax Deduction

Donating a car to charity has never been this easy. All you have to do is call 1-877-431-9474 or fill out a simple vehicle donation form online. Our experienced vehicle donations representatives will take care of the rest. Representatives are also available to answer any and all questions you might have about the car donation process. We are happy to help, so give us a call today!

After you have made your donation, you will be contacted within 24 hours of the next business day. When contacted, you can schedule a free vehicle pick-up around your schedule.

Lastly, your tax deductible receipt will be mailed out to you. If you’re wondering how much you will get for your vehicle donation, here are the typical results:

If your donated vehicle is sold for less than $500, you claim the fair market value of your vehicle, up to $500, or the amount the vehicle is sold for if it’s less than fair market value. If the donated vehicle sells for less than $500, you claim the exact amount for which the vehicle is sold. In either case, you receive a tax deductible receipt at the time your vehicle is sold, and it will state the amount of the sale. For any vehicle sold for more than $500, the exact amount the vehicle is sold for will be stated on your receipt that is mailed out to you. This will in turn be your charitable tax deduction! We take care of all the hard parts of car donation so you don’t have to worry.

Make A Difference With Your Donation

Our partner, Make-A-Wish, helps children during one of the most difficult times of their lives. Children with life-threatening medical conditions – like all children – have big wishes that they hope one day will come true. However, for many of these children, their lives have been put on hold. Wishes are just what “Wish Kids” need to feel strength, hope and joy. When a wish is granted, it helps a child feel normal again.

Some wishes are elaborate while others are exotic, but each wish is completely unique because each child is completely unique. Some might wish to meet their favorite athletes or to give back to those in need, while others just want to live out their greatest career wish! Make-A-Wish works with volunteers around the world to make sure that every wish can be granted.

No matter the wish, your donation can help make it happen! It is a great feeling, knowing that your donation is making such a big difference in the life of a stranger. Donating a vehicle is fast, easy and a decision you will not regret. Help a child in your own community by calling 1-877-431-9474 today or make your car donation online. Just a few minutes of your time can make a world of difference to a child.
