Tax Information

Donors are entitled to receive a Tax Deduction equal to the sales price of the vehicle, if they itemize their deductions. If the vehicle sold for less than $500, donors can deduct the “fair market value” up to $500. They will receive a tax receipt or IRS Form 1098C stating what the vehicle sold for within 30 days of its sale.

The “fair market value” of a vehicle is the price that a donor could sell it for in its current condition to another individual, willing seller and willing buyer, and it represents the cash that a donor gives up to make the donation. A convenient source of this information is the private party sale value as shown in online valuation guides such as Kelley Blue Book (

ICA, as the actual recipient of the donation, must file Form 1098C with the IRS for all vehicle donations, including donor’s Social Security number and vehicle’s Vehicle Identification Number (VIN. There are no tax filings required of the non-profit.

V-DAC gives no tax advice. It is solely the donor’s responsibility to report vehicle value and tax status. For more information about tax deduction for vehicle donation, the IRS provides . “A Donor’s Guide to Car Donations”
