If I Donate a Car in San Jose, is it tax deductible?

Absolutely! Donating a car is one of the better charitable tax deductions you can claim. Any and all vehicles we receive in the San Jose or Silicon Valley vicinity benefit Activated Ministries, an IRS recognized, 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization and can be claimed as a tax deduction come tax time. Even donating an old junker can entitle you to a valuable vehicle donation tax deduction of up to $500 with the initial tax receipt you get. Automobiles in good condition which sell at auction for more than $500, entitle you to claim the (higher) actual sales amount. In that case, we send you a second receipt containing the greater value.

What are Car Donors in the San Jose Area Giving To and Are The Car Donations Tax Deductible?  Yes! Car donations made to Activated Ministries Donate a Car 2 Charity Program are fully tax deductible.
