#2: You can claim the gross sale value when your vehicle is sold at auction.

 The IRS allows a donor to claim the gross sale value of your donated vehicle. We work hard to make sure that you can receive the maximum deduction for your donated vehicle by sending them to the best auction where cars sell for top value. If your vehicle donation is a scrap car you can still receive the minimum deduction of $500.

#3: We Provide all Necessary Tax Deduction Receipts and IRS Forms

Donate a Car 2 Charity provides a written acknowledgment of your car donation as soon as you donate your car -- either by using our online car donation form or by calling one of our operators.  If your donated car qualifies for a deduction of more than $500, we will mail you an additional receipt as soon as the car is sold so that you can claim the maximum deduction for your car donation. 

#4: Some Vehicle Donations Qualify for a "Fair Market Value" Deduction

The IRS allows a donor to claim the "Fair Market Value" of their vehicle donation if:

The vehicle is either donated or sold at a price significantly below market value to a needy, low income family or individual.
