How to Maximize Your Tax Deduction:

Car donations made to a charitable nonprofit organization are tax-deductible.  The best practice is to consult with a tax professional on how to maximize your tax deduction since every car donation and tax situation is unique.  

In general, the IRS limits the tax deduction to the gross proceeds from the sale of the car, truck or other vehicle.  Charitable contributions must be itemized on Schedule A of Form 1040 to qualify.  If the total deduction claimed on the tax return exceeds $500, Form 8283 “Non-cash Charitable Contributions” must also be completed and attached.
