Vehicle Donation Information

Donating Vehicles to Charity

Atypical for our tax system, taxpayers are actually encouraged to help others through deductions. Here's the latest tax information on donating vehicles to charity.

Traditionally, a taxpayer was given a windfall when donating a vehicle to charity. Regardless of the condition, one could claim a deduction for the fair market value of the car. Obviously, the fair market value of a car is a bit of a vague figure. Alas, the IRS has issued new regulations clamping down on unrealistic fair market value claims.

Under the American Jobs Creation Act, the method for valuing a vehicle donated to charity has changed.

For instance, if the charity uses it for a few months to deliver meals or carry out administrative needs, you get the fair market deduction. Make sure you get something in writing from the charity to back up the deduction claim!

Second, you can claim the fair market value deduction if the charity makes material improvements to the vehic...
