Donate Your Vehicle
According to the IRS, they (1) generally limit the deduction to the actual sales prices of the vehicle when sold by the donee charity, and (2) require donors to get a timely acknowledgment from the charity to claim the deduction.
Donors may claim a deduction of the vehicle’s fair market value under the following circumstances:
- The charity makes a significant intervening use of the vehicle, such as using it to deliver meals on wheels.
- The charity makes a material improvement to the vehicle, i.e., major repairs that significantly increase its value and not mere painting or cleaning.
- The charity donates or sells the vehicle to a needy individual at a significantly below-market price, if the transfer furthers the charitable purpose of helping a poor person in need of a means of transportation.
If you want to donate your vehicle for us to sell, or you have a vehicle you think we can use, please consider donating your used vehicle.
