Get The Best Tax Deduction For Your Car Donation

Wheels For Wishes provides tax documentation to those donating a car to charity. All you need to do is save the tax deductible receipt when it arrives in the mail. While doing your taxes in the spring, this receipt will allow you to claim a deduction.

There are many ways to make a difference in the life of a child, and one simple difference you can make is to donate your car. Your contribution is simple, but it will assist in granting the wish of a child, and putting a cheerful smile on his or her face. The value of the joy and memories created far exceeds the value of your physical donation.

You make wishes possible with your car donations to Wheels For Wishes, like 5 year old Liam’s wish to be a police officer.
