Financial Benefits of Donating Your Car
Help the Needy While Giving Your Wallet a Boost!
Are you ready to make a difference in the lives of the needy while reaping some financial benefits in return? You can do that when you donate an unwanted vehicle to charity. Besides supporting a worthy cause, you’ll give your wallet a boost!
How Can a Car Donation Benefit You Financially?
Donating an old car to charity comes with financial rewards — from tax deductions to saving money that you would otherwise use for paying for car repairs and maintenance. Breast Cancer Car Donations invites you to take a closer look at the financial benefits of making a vehicle donation.
1. You’ll save money on the costs of selling the vehicle.
You may have to shell out hard-earned money when you try to sell your car, especially if it needs major repairs. Aside from paying for the cost of repairs, you’ll have to pay to advertise your car so you can find buyers. When you donate your car to a charity, you avoid the hassles of selling a vehicle and the expenses associated with the process.
Nonprofits that offer car donation programs typically sell the vehicles they received as they are. A typical nonprofit will take care of repairs that need to be done on your car before selling it at an auction. It’s worth noting that if a charity can no longer fix a dilapidated car, it will sell the vehicle as scrap metal and cover the expenses of scrapping it.
2. You’ll avoid the cost of towing.
Vehicle owners usually pay towing companies to haul off their run-down cars to repair shops or scrap yards. One of the best ways to avoid the cost of doing this is to donate your no-longer-roadworthy car to a charity that offers a free pick-up service. While some charities own tow trucks, others partner with towing companies and vehicle removal services. Before donating your old beater, it’s important to check with the charity to see if it offers a free pick-up service.
3. You’ll receive the highest possible tax deduction.
Under the U.S. tax code, donating a car to a qualified charity allows the donor to claim a tax deduction. The charity will send you a written acknowledgment that indicates your name, a description of the vehicle, the vehicle identification number (VIN), the donation date, the vehicle’s selling price, and a statement that no goods or services were received in return for your donation.
You must keep the charity’s written acknowledgment with your tax paperwork if you’re claiming a deduction of up to $500. However, if you’re claiming a deduction over $500, the IRS will require you to attach the charity’s written acknowledgment or completed Tax Forms 1098-C (Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes) to your itemized tax return. In addition, you’ll need to complete Section A of Tax form 8283 (Noncash Charitable Contributions). Moreover, you may be required to obtain a written appraisal of your vehicle and attach a completed Section B of Tax Form 8283 to your tax return if you’re claiming a deduction greater than $5,000.
