Were you unhappy with your tax return this year? If your CPA put a bug in your ear that you’ve got to find more write-offs for your returns, we’ve got an idea for you.
If you’re like most of your friends, you upgrade your car every couple of years. You just get tired of the scratches in the paint and dated technology.
Is it that time? Because if it is, you can make a car donation in Westlake Village and support your favorite cause at the same time!
Is this you?

Are you spending too much time driving the dealer’s loaner car while yours is in the service department? Maybe you’ve already test-driven the newest Range Rover or BMW 5-Series and you’re ready to shop.
If that’s the case, we want to warn you. You may be accustomed to doing a dealer trade-in, but we’re here to tell you—that’s not the route you want to go.
Why? First of all, you won’t get your tax break.
And second, the dealer is just scoring on you when you do that. They did a study at USC’s Marshall School of Business and found that dealers just increase the price of your new car when you bring a trade-in. They assume you won’t pay attention to cost.
Seriously, you only get about 30-40% of your car’s worth with CarMax or at the dealer. By contrast, donating a car to charity in Westlake lets you write off 100% of its value!
And one more thing—this is an excellent opportunity to send resources to your favorite cause.

Here’s what makes Cars2Charities different than other car donation programs. The higher the sale price of your car, the bigger your write-off and the more money going to the charity you choose. Our experts assess your car to see if it needs any repairs or upgrades, and our research shows that the cars usually sell for 25-50% more than if we didn’t make the changes.
