Why should I donate my car in Glendale instead of selling it?

Is the commute taking its toll on your car? Or is it time to retire your “mom car” for something smaller and more gas efficient?

Whatever the reason, you need a new car! Now you’re stuck with the job of finding a new home for the vehicle you don’t need anymore. Have you thought about a car donation in Glendale?car 1149997 640

It’s a great idea. Think of it as a win-win-win. Someone who needs a vehicle gets some wheels (your old car), a charity gets free money (proceeds from the sale of your car), and you get a tax write-off (plus the chance to go car shopping!)

If you are getting to know your auto mechanic a little too well, it’s probably time to move on. Or do you want to “go green” with a hybrid or electric model? Perhaps you just want a more comfortable commute with better hook-ups for your music.

You may be used to doing a dealer trade-in or visiting CarMax, but did you know that money is lost in these transactions? You typically only get 30-40% of your vehicle’s value. If you decide, instead, to donate your car in Glendale, California, your tax deduction is for 100% of the sale price of your vehicle.

When you donate a car to charity in Glendale, you can feel good about supporting your favorite charity. Pick any 501(c)(3) and they’ll get a check, compliments of your car! Are you active in a non-profit organization? How would you feel being able to give a little extra to your church, other house of worship, or you kids’ school? We support numerous charities, so let us know if you’d like us to suggest one.

The donation to your charity is higher that way.

How can I get the best car donation tax deduction in Glendale, California? 

You want to know your tax benefit is maximized when donating a car in Glendale. Your CPA will applaud you when he or she sees the bottom line in your paperwork. We told you how we make necessary changes to the vehicle, and we’ve seen that a donation car’s value usually goes up about 25-50% as a result of the alterations. The charity reimburses us for the towing and a standard service fee, and then they get a donation check.american 1239040 640

Have you read about various non-profits on Charity Navigator? Their website offers a lot of advice about different organizations and talks about why donating cars to charity is a relied upon measure to save on your taxes.

“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, which lowered taxpayers’ income tax liability by approximately $654 million. 

You can be sure we follow all the guidelines required by the IRS when you donate a vehicle for a tax deduction in California. After the sale, 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.

Do car donations in Glendale include RVs? What about a golf cart donation? A boat donation?
