If the charity sells your car sells for $500 or less, you can deduct $500 or your car’s fair market value, whichever is less.
For example, if your car is valued at $650 but sells for $350, you can deduct $500.
Most charities will report the sales price of your car to you on Form 1098-C.
Can you donate a car that does not run?
Yes, we are able to accept most vehicles whether they run or not. Even if your car hasn’t run for years, you can donate it to charity. You will still receive free vehicle pick-up when you donate a car that no longer runs. In most cases, non-running cars are recycled.
