Step 1: Determine What To Donate
You can donate a car, donate a truck, donate an SUV, donate a motorcycle, donate a boat, or donate an RV that you own. To prove ownership, you will need to have the title for your vehicle, or we will be unable to accept the donation. For more information, please visit the links below:
Step 2: Determine The Value of Vehicle
The IRS has taken the guesswork out of determining the value of your vehicle. You may deduct the full price that we receive from the sale of your vehicle. This greatly simplifies the process for you, the donor, because you no longer have to research and come up with an estimate of the fair market value of the vehicle. This also eliminates the risk of you getting into trouble by overstating the value of your deduction on your tax return. You’ll know exactly the amount you may deduct, eliminating guesswork, and saving you both time and risk.
You will receive a receipt at the time we pick up your vehicle, and as a follow up we will send you a second receipt later, as soon as we sell it, letting you know the exact amount for which it sold. That amount is your tax deduction. Giving Center will also provide you with your tax form 1098 C for your tax deduction.
If the age or condition of your vehicle is such that your tax deduction works out to be less than $500, you may use its fair market value instead of the sale price.
Step 3: Complete Donation Form
Complete the donation form with your vehicle information. Once we have received your form and reviewed your information, we will contact you to start the donation process. If you need assistance filling out the form, you can always call us at 888-228-7320 to speak to a live representative!
Step 4: Acquire The Title, Arrange For Pick up
Once we’ve reviewed your information, we will arrange to pick up your donated vehicle during a time most convenient to you. Before we arrive, make sure that you have cleaned all personal possessions out of the vehicle. Since most pick ups are done through a local towing company, make sure that you pass any special instructions on to Giving Center ahead of time.
Step 5: Get Your Tax Benefit
We will give you a receipt for your donation, which you can then use to obtain your tax deduction. Giving Center will provide you with all the information you need in order to receive your tax deduction come tax time.
