Car Charitable Donations

Car charitable donations can really make a difference, so if you're looking to get rid of an old vehicle, you should seriously consider a cars for charity program .

If you are concerned about the process being a hassle, rest assured it is a lot easier than you think. All you need to do these days is visit a website or place a phone call, provide a little information about you and your vehicle, and the charity takes care of the rest.

There are a number of reputable online sites for charitable auto donations, and in most cases you can arrange a pick up in just a few minutes.

After you contact them, these companies will arrange for your vehicle to picked up usually within three or four days, either from your home or a selected location. They will not charge you to tow the vehicle, so you don't have to concern yourself with those costs. And you might not even need to be there at the time the car is picked up...which is an added convenience.

Make sure you are dealing with a reputable car charity donation entity, so you will be able to take a tax deduction from the sale of your automobile. With the new tax law passed in January of 2005, you no longer have to estimate the value of the vehicle for tax purposes...you can now write off the full value of the car as noted on the receipt you will receive once it is sold.

The new code states that you may deduct up to $500, unless the cars for charity sell for more than that amount...either way, you will be notified of the exact amount so you'll have it for your records.

More important than saving money on your taxes, your charitable auto donations will go to a good cause, providing food, shelter and medication to the underprivileged...and that's worth a lot more than money!

So if you're looking to sell your old vehicle, why not consider a car charitable donation? It might just be the best decision you'll ever make, and can truly change someone else's life!
