Our Quick and Easy Car Donation Process
Our Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania car donations process is designed to provide our donors utmost ease and convenience. We’ve made it this way so that you’ll experience ease and comfort.
Like what we said earlier, you can start the donation process by either giving us a call or filling out our online donation form. Before doing so, please have the following details ready:
- Contact information (your phone number and email address)
- Car’s year, make, model, mileage, VIN, and title availability
We will also ask you about your car’s condition—if its running or not—and if you are in possession of your car’s title.
After verifying the information you shared, we will schedule your car’s pickup based on your preferred date, time and location.
A truck from a licensed towing company that we assigned for the job will be at your specified location on time. Before they take away your car, they will give you a towing receipt. This receipt releases you from all liabilities on your car, enabling you to lawfully cancel its registration and insurance coverage.
The tow truck will deliver your car to the best auction house in the city. Be assured that we’ll give our best shot to get the highest selling price possible for your car. This will mean more funds for us and a bigger tax deduction for you.
After your car is sold, you will receive a letter of acknowledgment from us together with your car’s tax-deductible sales receipt. The final selling price of your car shown on the receipt will serve as the basis of your tax deduction claim. Keep the receipt since you will need it in claiming your tax deduction when you file your itemized federal income tax return.Photo by Jay Johnson under Pexels License
How Tax Deductions Work
In claiming your tax deductions, you need to know some basic guidelines being implemented by the IRS.
For instance, if your car sells for less than $500, you have two options in claiming your tax deduction: Base it either on your car’s selling price or fair market value not exceeding $500. You can get an estimate of your car’s fair market value with the help of reputable online resources such as the Kelley Blue Book.
However, if your car sells for more than $500, you can only claim as your tax deduction the exact selling price of your car even if its fair market value is higher than the selling price.
