Car Donation Tax Deduction


How much will I receive as a tax deduction?

IF YOUR CAR SELLS FOR MORE THAN $500:
The IRS allows you to claim a tax deduction of the amount the car sold for. Your tax-deductible receipt will be for the car's full sale price.

IF YOUR CAR SELLS FOR LESS THAN $500:
You can claim the fair market value of the car, up to $500. According to the IRS, it is up to you to determine the fair market value of your car.

How we work to get you a high deduction:

Market experts

Experienced agents evaluate each car to determine its value and how much we can expect to sell it for.

Get the highest sale price

Depending on the local market, we’ll either sell the car at auction, to a dealer or a local yard.

Negotiate highest price

We don’t settle for the first price we’re offered. We keep the car on the market until we’re satisfied we’re getting the highest sale price.
