Tax Deduction

 

How Much Can I Deduct For My Car Donation?


When you donate a vehicle, it will be sold at auction or for  recycling purposes. The amount your vehicle is sold for determines how  much you can claim as a tax deduction. If your vehicle sells for less  than $500, you can claim the fair market value of your vehicle up to  $500, or the amount it sold for if less than fair market value. If your  vehicle sells for more than $500, you can claim the exact amount for  which the vehicle is sold.

FAQ

How car donation tax deduction works

Prior to January 2005, the IRS was allowing people who donated to a qualified car donation  program to take a tax deduction based on their vehicle’s market value  no matter how much or how little the vehicle sold for. Determining the  market value of a donated vehicle is often quite difficult and  time-consuming, which made determination of the amount of the tax  deduction confusing. Fortunately, as a result of the new tax law that  went into effect in January 2005, the IRS has taken the guesswork out of  determining the value of your donated car, truck, RV, boat or other  vehicle. 

 The IRS allows you to claim a tax deduction of:
        a) The value of your vehicle up to $500. It is up to the donor to determine the fair market value.
        b) The amount we sell your vehicle for, if the sale price is more than $50
