Is it time you replaced your vehicle? Is your car spending too much time in the shop? Or perhaps you’re simply in the market for an upgrade. You can improve your mobile office with an updated GPS and a superior sound system for calls to clients and for listening to the kids’ playlists during carpool.
Or it’s possible you want to pass on a gas-guzzler and downsize to a greener car, like a hybrid or electric vehicle.
If you normally do a dealer trade-in or call CarMax, may not be aware of the drawbacks. Both of those only get you 30-40% of your vehicle’s value, but donate your car in La Canada Flintridge and you get a tax deduction for 100% of the sale price!
When you donate a car to charity there are benefits to both you and to others as well. It’s a method of getting money to your favorite charity, plus another individual gets a car to drive, while you collect the tax benefit. Pick any 501(c)(3) and they get a nice check! You likely have non-profit groups you already support. Maybe it’s your kids’ school or your house of worship. Do you need help picking a non-profit? We have dozens of charities to suggest, or let us know if you’d like us to begin a partnership with one of your connections.

We typically pick up within 24-48 hours at the time and location that’s most convenient for you. Our experts assess your auto donation to make selective improvements and upgrades, which maximizes the vehicle’s value, meaning a bigger write-off for you and a better donation to the charity you choose.
Some government rebate and car charity programs require that you bring the car to them. But not us. We come to you and after pick up, we find a buyer for your car and finish the whole process – even the DMV paperwork. You don’t have to deal with the hassles of meeting Craigslist buyers or other social media platforms. At no charge to you, we send an experienced driver to tow your donating vehicle, regardless of whether or not it still runs.
Your charity car donation in La Canada is completely transparent to all parties: you, the charity and the IRS all receive the same IRS form 1098, showing the exact sale price. We email you a confirmation letter outlining each step of our process. You get a temporary donation receipt, and it’s so easy…we handle the DMV paperwork for you, including the title transfer of your car.
Do you hate all the last minute decision-making when you’re doing Turbo Tax or meeting with the CPA? You’ll make your CPA happy to know your deduction is maximized: a donated car’s value usually goes up about 25-50% as a result of the alterations we make. The charity reimburses us for the towing and a standard service fee, and then they get a donation check.
As the Charity Navigator website says, “The glory of charitable donations is that you give and receive at the same time,” it says. “You should clearly contribute, rather than throw out, old clothes, furniture and equipment that you no longer use.”
A report by the United States General Accounting Office to the U.S. Senate’s Committee on Finance estimated that tax deductions for donated vehicles were claimed on about 733,000 tax returns, lowering taxpayers’ income tax liability by an estimated $654 million.
We follow every guideline dictated by the IRS when you donate a vehicle for a tax deduction in California. When we sell it, we report the sale price to you and the charity. You both receive IRS Form 1098-C within 30 days of the sale, so you get the tax deduction for the total.
