When you donate car you no longer use, want or need to charity, you will feel so good about yourself, it will be like you are dancing with the stars. You will feel very good about helping to support a charity. You will also feel very good about the tax deduction you will get for donating a car.
Your tax deduction depends on what the charity you donate car to does with your car donation. If the charity uses your car for their purposes, gives it to a deserving person or makes major repairs to it, you can claim the fair market value of your car as long as it does not exceed the amount you paid for it. The fair market value is the value of the car on the day you donate it and in the condition you donated it in. If the charity sells your car donation, your tax deduction is limited to the greater of $500 or the amount the charity actually sells it for.
Most car donations need significant repairs. For that reason, most charities do not use them or give them to deserving individuals. The manner in which charities sell donated cars varies. Many auction all car donations, no matter what condition they are in. Cars4Charities is different. Their objective is to maximize the sale price on every car that is donated to them for two very important reasons. First, the tax deduction for the donor depends on the sale price of their car donation. Second, the more money received from the sale of the car donation means more money to the charity.
