Tax Benefits

It is important to us at Instant Car Donation that you receive the largest allowable tax deduction possible without having to navigate complexities or perform extensive research. We pre-qualify all of our participating 501-c(3) non-profit charities to verify your donation will be tax deductible. The process will be streamlined for both you and the charity of your choice. We will provide you with an IRS 8283 tax form after your donation is complete.

The Importance of Choice

Donating a car is one of the most financially responsible ways to make a large charitable contribution.  Although the donee receives a tax benefit, the charity may benefit even more, by receiving a windfall that can help it to fund important projects.   Because of this, one of our primary goals is to match donees with the charities that best reflect their beliefs and values.  At Instant Car Donation, we always make charity choice an integral part of the process.  

For those of you who haven't decided on a particular charity, you can also indicate that on your contribution form and we will be happy to help your choose a charity that's right for you.

Your Local Community

There are many charities in your local area which can benefit from your car donation. We not only help you donate to a nearby charity, but we also focus on providing small local non-profits with an easy way to accept donations so that they can focus on their important work. Often the donation will make the biggest difference for such charities, bringing people together while helping support those in their local community who need it the most.

Is there a tax benefit for donating my car?
