Frequently Asked Questions


How will the value of my vehicle be determined for tax purposes?

As of January 1, 2005 the IRS has taken the guesswork out of determining the value of your vehicle for tax purposes. If your vehicle sells for less than $500 you can claim the fair market value of your vehicle up to $499. If your vehicle sells for more than $500 you can deduct the actual sale price of your vehicle. After the vehicle is sold you’ll receive a receipt for the price the the vehicle is sold for. Also note a social security number is not required if your vehicle sells below $500.

When will I receive my tax receipt?

In most cases you will receive a tax receipt within 45 days after your vehicle gets picked up.

How does the charitable tax deduction work?

It’s not hard, but it’s not automatic either. Your tax advisor can help you with the details in your state. For more detailed information about vehicle donation, including some state-by-state title information, see additional FAQ below or consult the following resources:


What can I claim as a deduction?

You can deduct the value of your vehicle only if you itemize deductions when filing your taxes. If you itemize your tax return you may deduct the sale value of your donated vehicle or the fair market value up to $500, whichever is greater. A receipt indicating the sale price and date will be sent to you within 30 days from the date of pick up.

Every donated vehicle can bring money for its parts, components and recyclable metal. It may not seem valuable to you, but there’s someone out there ready to buy it. And that money will go to support veterans!

What kinds of vehicles can I donate?

Anything at all. Cars, trucks, motorcycles. Vehicles with damage, broken components, missing parts. Snowmobiles, boats, and farm equipment, too. Every vehicle has value.
