The IRS has set the rules for the tax deduction of your vehicle donation
You can claim the fair market value of your vehicle up to and including $500, or the amount it is sold for if less than fair market value.
When you donate your car, you will receive a tax deductible receipt to be submitted with your taxes.
You can claim the exact amount for which the vehicle is sold
When you donate your car, we will provide you with a tax deductible receipt
Within 30 days from the sale of your vehicle we will provide you with a 1098-C form to submit with your taxes
To receive a tax deduction for a donated vehicle, you must include any charitable contributions itemized on Schedule A of Form 1040 from the IRS. Include your Charity Auto Donation tax-deductible receipt with your tax return. You do not need to submit Form 1098-C if your vehicle sells for less than $500 as your official Charity Auto Donation receipt is considered sufficient documentation by the IRS. If your vehicle sells for more than $500 but less than $5,000 you will need to submit the provided 1098-C form along with form 8283.
For vehicles that sell for more than $5,000, your form 8283 will need to include signature from a qualified appraiser on IRS Form 8283, section B. You can access form 8283 here: IRS Form 8283

If more than one person is listed as an owner on the front of the title, they must also sign on the signature of seller line.

The IRS allows the donor to determine the fair market value up to $500. If we sell your donated car for over $500, the IRS allows you to claim the selling price as a deduction.
