We will use the funds to provide skills training to these individuals so that they can qualify for jobs that they’re best suited at.

With your old car out of the way, you now have that space in your garage for that new car you plan to purchase.
How Does Tax Deductions Work?
In claiming your tax deduction, you are required to itemize first your deductions on your income tax return.
If your car is sold at auction for less than $500, you can claim as your tax deduction either the selling price of your car or its fair market value up to $500. You can get a good estimate of your car’s fair market value with the help of reliable online resources such as the Kelley Blue Book.
If your car is sold for higher than $500, you can only claim the specific amount for which it was sold even if its fair market value is bigger than its selling price.
