You are entitled to receive a tax deduction equal to what the vehicle is sold for by the charity if you itemize your deductions.

Answers To Vehicle Donation Questions
Your car is assessed to determine the used car market that will yield the best sale price, joining some 43 million other cars resold each year. Most vehicles are sold through wholesale auctions; older, damaged and problem vehicles are often sold directly to dismantlers or recyclers for valuable parts and metals.
Because we work with a very large national network of auction yards, we match your vehicle to the appropriate buyer. For example, recently we took a donor’s 1972 Porsche 911 to a premium car auction, where it netted five figures. Meantime, another donor’s beat up 1991 GMC Jimmy sold for $200 at a dismantler.
You are entitled to deduct the sales price of your vehicle and, if it sells for less than $500, the fair market value of the vehicle.
You benefit from being able to reduce your taxable income when taxes are itemized. We provide you with a sales receipt or IRS Form 1098C.
Tax Benefits Of Car Donation
The fair market value of a vehicle is the price a donor could sell it in its current condition to another individual, willing seller or willing buyer, and represents the cash that a donor gives up in the form of the donation.
A convenient source of information on the private-party sale value is in on-line valuation guides such as Kelley Blue Book, Edmunds or NADA.
The Vehicle Donation Program provides the donor with written acknowledgment (a Tax Receipt or IRS Form 1098C) within 30 days of selling the vehicle, stating either the amount the vehicle sold for (if over $500), or that the vehicle is eligible for the fair market value deduction (if it sold for less than $500).
If itemizing deductions, donors must file the Tax Receipt or IRS Form 1098C with their tax return.
The Vehicle Donation Program must file Form 1098C with the IRS for all vehicle donations, including the donor's Social Security Number and Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
