The amount you can claim from the IRS as a tax deduction depends on the category applicable to you:
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 it is more than $500.

Kars4kids is a classified 501(c)(3) charity organization. You can check with your tax advisor or accountant to determine the amount of your benefit. The deduction is of value only if the donor itemizes his or her deductions. For a more detailed overview the IRS publishes a Donors Guide to Car Donation.
Kars4Kids accepts donations of virtually all kinds of vehicles, including but not limited to: car, snow plow, boat, bus, jet ski, truck, airplane, van, trailer, motorcycle, ATV, tractor, commercial, fleet and RV (motor home) donations. Sorry, no kids.
We can usually pick up a vehicle without a title in Maryland . We just need the registered owner to sign some paperwork for us.

1. Remove all plates
All plates must be removed from your car prior to towing.

2. Return your plates to the DMV
License plates can be mailed to the DMV or dropped off in person.

Drop your plates off in person.
There are 3 ways you can drop off your plates:
A) Return them in person to any MVA branch office, including express offices.
B) Return them to any MVA authorized tag and title service.
C) Drop them in one of the MVA license plate return drop boxes. Currently, drop boxes with 24 hour access are located at the Baltimore City, Columbia, Gaithersburg, Glen Burnie, and Salisbury offices.  Drop boxes are available during normal business hours at the Essex and Waldorf offices.  

Or mail the plates to:
6601 Ritchie Highway, N.E.
Glen Burnie, MD 21062
Sending them by certified mail with return receipt requested is recommended. Note: When you return the license plates, always include your registration card.

3. Cancel your insurance
Cancel your insurance after your car has been towed.
WARNING: Do not cancel your insurance until you are sure that the MVA has received your license plates. Failure to do so could result in a large fine. There is no fee for returning license plates.

Visit for more information on your state car donation laws.
In almost all scenarios Kars4kids will apply for the new title for you. We'll handle all the paperwork and pay the title fees too.
If you'd prefer you may apply for a new title on your own. Here's how:
Visit the MVA's website at

The KIOSK is located in all full service and Express Service MVA's.

At a tag and title service licensed by the MVA
You'll be required to submit a copy of your valid state issued identification and complete an Application for Duplicate Certificate of Title (VR-018)

In Person
Visit a local branch office. The request must include a completed Application for Duplicate Certificate of Title that has been signed by all vehicle owners. The duplicate title will be mailed the next business day to the address on record with the MVA.
