Your Guides to Vehicle Donation

Vehicle Donation Step 3:

The third step in car donation is to find a charity organization to donate your car.

If you are associated with any charity or non-profit organizations, that organization might be your choice for donating your car. Otherwise, check the Yellow Book or search on the Internet to find an organization to which you feel like donating your car.

After you have identified a candidate, you should review IRS Publication 78, which is a list of organizations eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions. This document is also available on the IRS's website and it's searchable. You may also verify an organization’s status by calling the IRS Customer Account Services division for Tax Exempt and Government Entities at (877) 829-5500 (toll-free).

Make sure the candidate charity is eligible. Otherwise, you might not get your tax deduction!
