Again, we strongly recommend that donors refer to the IRS publication “A Donor’s Guide to Vehicle Donation” for more information on vehicle donation and taxes. The IRS allows you to determine the value of your own vehicle up to $500. If your vehicle sells for less than $500 at auction, the tax receipt you receive will say “Did not exceed $500”. This will allow you to claim the maximum deduction for the donation on your taxes, if you itemize deductions. If your donated vehicle sells for more than $500 we will contact you to obtain your social security number (or equivalent identification for tax purposes) so that we can complete the IRS Form 1098-C. Volunteers of America and its affiliates do not provide tax, legal, or accounting advice. This material has been prepared for informational purposes only. It is the donor’s responsibility to verify tax, legal, and accounting information and/or consult appropriate advisors.
